Important Tips for Use of Parts with Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA)

Storage: Enclosed parts should be stored in a cool, dry area (64°F-76°F), and 50-70% humidity. The supplier is not responsible for the performance of parts that have been stored improperly or for parts that have been stored for longer than six (6) months.

Surface Preparation: Surface must be free from oil, grease, cutting fluids, dirt, dust and moisture. Cleaning agents should be used that do not leave a residue. Different surfaces will result in different bond strengths.

Application: Make sure that both parts are at room temperature (72°F) or above before application. Both parts should be at the same temperature. Part should be applied firmly and uniformly. Stretching the part during application will result in release from the surface.

RubberMill can also apply permanent or pressure sensitive hot melt adhesives to a variety of substrates to meet customer requirements. Roll goods up to 60” wide can be laminated on one or two sides to create layered composites.
