Readers last week were most interested in Bostik’s PSTC Tape Summit success (Bostik Wins Innovative Poster Session at PTSC Tape Summit): “Bostik recently announced that it was the recipient of the Best Poster Award during the Innovative Poster Session at the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council’s (PSTC) recent Tape Summit in Baltimore, Md. Each year, select companies are given the opportunity to discuss new developments to the technical community at Tape Summit. Presentations are judged on poster display, problem perspective, interest evoked, and scientific investigation. This year, Christophe Robert, Bostik EMEA’s PSA manager, presented on moisture-cured pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) technology and earned the award.

“‘With a deep understanding of today’s tape market, our technical team knew the importance of removing solvent carriers in PSAs,’ said Christophe. ‘By formulating a 100% solids, moisture-cured technology that can cross-link and give a 3D network, we are able to produce a silylated modified polymer-based PSA that offers high temperature performance and solvent resistance.’”
