Advancements in medical technology can revolutionize how consumers track their health and how doctors monitor patients’ ailments. A crucial yet often overlooked component of these technological breakthroughs is pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs).
For years, pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) have been creating new opportunities for improved production processes in the automotive and transportation markets. According to the Adhesive and Sealant Council Inc., one of the first uses of acrylic PSA tapes in the automotive market came about in the 1960s as a solution for replacing mechanical fasteners to attach vehicle trim, thus improving corrosion resistance.*
