Discussing the manufacture technology of pressure-sensitive adhesive and products, Volume 2 of the Handbook of Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives and Products includes the synthesis of pressure-sensitive raw materials and the design and formulation of pressure-sensitive adhesives. Taking into account monomers, polymerization methods, and polymerization technology, it addresses the offline and inline synthesis of pressure-sensitive raw materials and adhesives. The book describes the main formulation components, along with important chemical and technological additives, and considers the role of formulation as it correlates to formulation technology and equipment. It also highlights the components and build-up of pressure-sensitive products, including the equipment and methods involved in coating, converting, and confectionating.
