5 Reasons PSAs Fail A Guide to Preventing Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Failure

arrow right

It's easy to tell when a pressure sensitive adhesive fails, but it's not always apparent why this failure happened. This guide is intended to help you get to the root of why the adhesives on your die-cut parts may be failing and give you the ammunition you need to prevent it from happening again. 

3M VHB Tape Product Selection Guide

When choosing an adhesive, there are multiple factors to consider. First, you must know the basic properties (including the surface energy) of the substrates you wish to bond. To form a secure bond, the surface energy of the substrate must be higher than that of the adhesive. This guide, which provides in-depth information on 3Ms low surface energy tapes and adhesives, walks you through the basics of choosing a pressure sensitive adhesive for your low surface energy bonding application.
