Dow Corning claims its first commercially available silicone pressure sensitive adhesives “overcome the limitations found in earlier industry attempts to develop a commercially viable solventless silicone PSA”.
Loren Durfee, senior development chemist, says: “Early materials had the tack and adhesion typical of a silicone PSA, but they lacked the high temperature shear performance many industrial PSA applications require.” He says the new Dow Corning 2013 adhesive gives tape and label manufacturers all the performance advantages of solvent based silicone PSAs without the solvent. This enables manufacturers to pursue high value applications that require typical silicone PSA benefits such as the ability to maintain adhesion at high and low temperature extremes; adhesion to low energy surfaces; and chemical, moisture and UV resistance.
