Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives (PSAs)
Package and container sealing is a key component of today’s complex manufacturing processes. Manufacturers require a system that quickly delivers consistently applied adhesive while fitting into streamlined packaging lines. Many companies turn to hot-melt adhesive delivery systems for their packaging needs.
Industrial rollers are used in the manufacturing and processing of almost every material—from paper to coiled steel and plastic packaging to textiles.
The choice of elastomers based on styrene block copolymer (SBC) technology for tapes and labels has traditionally been split between solvent and hot-melt systems.
This spring, suppliers, manufacturers and other tape industry professionals will convene at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn., for the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council (PSTC) Tape Summit 2014.
I’ve been doing a fair amount of traveling lately, and I had a somewhat below-average experience while checking out of one hotel.
The increasing need for weight reduction of end-user products, high bonding solutions, sustainable developments, growing tape demand, rising GDP and purchasing power, are all expected to drive the global pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) market to $8.4 billion by 2018.
