What are Pressure Sensitive Tapes?
Pressure sensitive tapes are adhesive tapes that stick to the substance when pressure is applied, without any need for solvent, heat or any other activist. Many variants of these tapes are available in the market, such as single sided tape, double sided tape, adhesive transfer tape or transfer adhesive, single coated tape, double coated tape, carton sealing, masking, electrical and electronics, and others.
The primary application of these tapes includes bonding, sealing, packaging and masking.
Emerging Trends, Drivers and Challenges in the Pressure Sensitive Tape Market:
New types of biodegradable pressure sensitive adhesive tapes are emerging in the market. The demand for biodegradable and eco-friendly pressure sensitive tapes has increased in the past few years because of environmental regulations and consumer preference towards environmentally friendly products.
These pressure sensitive adhesive tapes are capable of undergoing decomposition into carbon dioxide, water or biomass. They also occupy less landfill space in comparison to ordinary pressure sensitive tapes. Biodegradable polymer is made from the polymerization of bio-based raw material; it is a good alternative to petroleum based raw material. Biodegradable polymer has emerged as the best alternative in response to fluctuating oil prices, a major challenge to the Global Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes market.
