Pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape is a tape having backing material applied with pressure sensitive adhesive material. The adhesive activates quickly when it is kept on substrate and pressure is applied. These types of adhesive do not require any kind of solvent, heat or water to for activation. In order to protect adhesive on tape before end use; sometimes a removable layer is also provided.
Though it is industrially termed as PSA tape; it is also known as sticky-tape in domestic use. Pressure sensitive tapes are manufactured industrially by lamination process in which rollers are provided to simply apply pressure sensitive adhesive to backing layer and allowing it to cure up to substantial level.
Depending upon backing layer provided such as plastic film, paper, metal foil or cloth; it has different applications. These applications are packaging industry, household, industrial, office use and medical. PSA forms excellent bond after several hours of application. Hence these tapes find applications in automobile industry also.
All pressure sensitive adhesives are elastomer based but the elastomeric material varies such as ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), acrylics, butyl rubber, natural rubber, silicone rubbers and nitriles etc. It may be single sided or both sided. Because of its wide area of application North America and Western Europe are established markets whereas Asia-Pacific is expected to be largest growing market followed by South America East Europe, Middle East, Africa and RoW.
One of the major driving factors for this market is continuous growth of packaging industry. PSA tape have become integrated part for packaging industry since it is invented right from domestic purpose, office use to industries. Growing demand in medical field such as cloth based PSA tapes is another driving factor. Some crosslinkable adhesive based tapes may restrict the industrial market. PSA tapes high temperature plastics is one of the future e trend.
