Adhesives & Sealants

Application Areas

Pressure sensitive adhesives

Methacrylate monomers are used as comonomers mainly in binders for water-based PSAs, but also for acrylic hot melt systems. They are added to improve mechanical properties and provide additional functionalities like adhesion promotion. Acrylic PSAs are mainly used as adhesives for labels, tapes or lamination, especially in the packaging industry.
