Pressure sensitive adhesives product development services

Ashland’s global technology team is staffed with scientists dedicated to the development of novel pressure-sensitive adhesives. Ashland’s product development process starts with the determination of customer needs and priorities. The product requirement list is built upon all aspects of adhesive processing and end-use performance. Key characteristics include face stock and release liner compatibility, coatability and convertibility as well as converting and application methods of the final pressure-sensitive article. Development involves determining the polymer structure-property relationship and compounding ingredients that create the desired balance of finished product properties. This fundamental understanding is key to successfully scaling the product from the lab into the pilot plant to consistent full-scale production.
