While some adhesives might require heat or some kind of solvent to efficiently activate and bind two materials together, pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) only require pressure. PSA materials are made from a non-cross linked rubber adhesives, polyurethanes and acrylics. Although a pressure sensitive adhesive can form a strong bond, it can also be produced so it is easily peeled off without damaging the surface. PSA's can firmly adhere to almost all types of surfaces such as wood, paper, and plastic. Tape, labels, and post-it notes are also products that use PSA's.
There are 3 types of PSA Products:
Hot melt PSA
