Pressure Sensitive Adhesives:

Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSAs) are the backbone to many applications. Choose the wrong PSA and you risk failure.Zone offers a wide range of PSAs (pressure sensitive adhesives). The choice of adhesive depends on the product selected for your application, the substrate on which it will be applied, the intended environment and the degree of adhesion required.

The two main adhesives used in PSA applications are rubber‑based and acrylic‑based.

Rubber-based adhesives have high initial tack, achieve maximum holding power immediately on application, and are typically the most economical choice.

Acrylic-based adhesives generally exhibit lower initial tack and achieve ultimate adhesion 24-72 hours following application. Compared to rubber‑based adhesives, acrylics offer higher resistance and better long‑term performance, support higher temperatures and are recommended for outdoor use.

Zone stocks both solvent acrylic and hot melt rubber-based PSAs in a variety of sizes and types. Our PSA’s are available in supported and unsupported formats. PET or tissue supported adhesives add dimensional stability to your substrate while unsupported PSA conforms well to irregular surfaces. All Zone Enterprises’ PSAs come standard with a moisture-proof, stay flat release liner.

Additionally, Zone carries a line of mounting and foam tapes that exhibit exceptional “holding power” and can satisfy a broad range of application needs. To learn more about our line of pressure sensitive adhesive, please click here.
