PSA Formulation Strategies for Tapes & Labels

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Sep 9, 2014

Meet faster Tapes & Labels manufacturers’ needs by updating on today’s PSA formulation state-of-the-art (acrylic, silicone, hybrids, PUD, biopolymer resins...) and by better understanding your options in regards to the targeted end-use.

Formulation strategies will be matched to the various tapes & labels designs and manufacturing processes as well as per applications (packaging, B&C, automobile, medical, electrical, photovoltaics, aerospace…).

Why should you view this course?

With ever-increasing pressure to develop faster successful formulations, the need to integrate all the constraints and not only adhesive common targets (peel / shear strength, tack, durability...) is deepening... Yet formulators are often disconnected from Tapes & Labels manufacturers' world.


  1. Increase your success rate by formulating for the specific needs set by design, manufacturing and end-use (high volume, coatability, fast drying, set time, release…)
  2. Be well equipped to address top challenges (adhesion to low energy films, heat and moisture resistance…) by reviewing current strategies & latest developments
  3. Expand easily into new tapes & labels areas: get starting formulations to meet these new specific needs

Who should view this course?

  • PSAs Formulators wishing to update on current state-of-the-art & look for novel formulation opportunities
  • Tapes & Labels Manufacturers needing to be clear on latest formulation developments
  • Course Outline

    The following sections will be covered during this session:

    1. Introduction:
      Market sectors, tape & label design, material & process classification

    2. Application and Performance Requirements, Test Methods

    3. Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Formulation

    4. Effects of Down-Stream Processes on the Formulations
      (Compounding, Converting, End-Use)

    5. Recent Development Activities for PSA Tapes and Labels
