Radiation Curable Acrylic Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives
A technical paper on new high-performance UV-curable acrylic hot-melt, pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) is available from National Adhesives, Bridgewater, N.J.
The paper, by Dr. Graeme A. Roan of National Adhesives, explains why the adhesives represent the next generation of high performance PSAs, and how they provide a genuine, technically and commercially viable alternative to solvented PSAs in industrial tape applications. The adhesives can be cured efficiently with relatively low doses of UV light, giving rise to reliable, reproducible performance tapes with excellent depth of cure across the range of industrial tapes.
Dr. Roan has worked in the acrylics business in both the United States and Europe, and has been involved in the PSAs business in a range of technology platforms, including 100 percent solid UV-curable materials.
