Last week in our Beginner’s Guide to PSAs, we briefly covered three main chemistries and formats of pressure sensitive adhesive tapes. Of the PSAs available, rubber-based, double-sided adhesive tapes are versatile, general purpose adhesives capable of bonding a variety of materials in numerous applications.
Let’s take a look at the wide range of applications where rubber-based PSAs are used as well as the substrates they bond.
- Case and carton sealing/re-sealing
- Insulation barriers
- Direct mail/marketing
- Product assembly
- Contract packaging
- Protective packaging
