- Protective Packaging
We all know how frustrating it can be to order a product online and receive a box that is beaten up with the item inside broken. As a manufacturer or packaging engineer, you want to focus on creating a positive end-user experience. You want customers to continue purchasing your company’s product.
PSAs are effective at bonding foam material and cardboard inserts to packaging material. The adhesive secures the product in place and protects it from outside forces. This ensures that the product reaches its final destination undamaged.
- Pallet Stabilization
PSAs not only help protect interior packaging, but they can also help protect your product from the outside. PSAs can be used to maintain load integrity by securing corner boards, which can be easily removed from the shipment at its destination. This type of adhesive can also be applied to each package, stacked on one another to help stabilize the pallet.
- Product Assembly
A great alternative to mechanical fasteners and traditional adhesives, PSAs instantly bond your substrates in place. Flexibility is one of their key strengths benefiting the assembly industry. PSAs act as a “second set of hands” and allow workers to reposition substrates before final assembly takes place. Numerous tack levels offer the option of a temporary assist or permanent adhesion.

You know the various card offers you receive by mail? Usually those cards are secured to paper using a PSA. PSAs are used to affix many items in mass mailers, such as credit cards, gift cards, membership cards, rebate cards and free product samples. Removability is an important factor here. PSAs provide the right amount of adhesion, allowing for easy and clean removal.
