Pressure sensitive adhesives belong to those categories of adhesives which have the ability to adhere to different substrates when pressure is applied on their surface. Polar attraction to the surface of a substrate is the primary bonding mode of pressure sensitive adhesives. For manufacturing of pressure sensitive adhesives, several adhesive systems, namely, solvent based and hot melt are utilized. In case of solvent-based systems, adhesive ingredients are suspended in solvent. On the other hand in case of hot melts, thermoplastic rubbers are compounded with tackifiers, oils and antioxidants. Pressure sensitive adhesives have the property of remaining viscous and do not solidify. They are thus permanently tacky. Such adhesives possess the ability to wet surfaces with which they come in contact. These adhesives are not considered true solids. The reason behind this being that their strength decreases with an increase in temperature.
Global Pressure Sensitive Adhesives Market has been valued at $8,408 million in 2016. The market is expected to garner $12,963 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 6.4%
