Handbook of Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives and Products: - Three Volume Set
Constitutes the first handbook to discuss the fundamental and industrial aspects of pressure-sensitive adhesives and products
Contains more than 5000 references, providing an exhaustive listing of relevant research
Discusses the theoretical and practical aspects of domain, materials, equipment, and technology
Offers a comprehensive and comparative overview of the domain of adhesive science, technology, and products
- Includes contributions by more than 20 international authors from various specialized areas within pressure-sensitive science and technologies
Divided into three sections that are also available as individual volumes, this is the first reference to offer a complete guide to the fundamentals, manufacturing, and applications of pressure-sensitive adhesives and products. An indispensable source of state-of-the-art information, this handbook covers the design for pressure-sensitive adhesives and products, the manufacture technology and equipment for such products, including their testing and application, and the theory and practice that correlate with the main domains of product development. Topically organized, it presents a comprehensive list of terms and definitions and offers a cross-disciplinary look at pressure-sensitive adhesives, spanning such areas as physics, surface chemistry, electronic materials, automotive engineering, packaging, and the biomedical, tape, and label industries.
