Our solutions for pressure-sensitive adhesives

STRIPPING AWAY THE PROBLEMS
FROM SELF-STICK TAPES AND LABELS

Eliminate MOSH/MOAHs and reduce VOCs

IN YOUR HOT MELT PSA FORMULATIONS

Pressure-sensitive adhesives, or PSAs, provide the self-sticking layer of a wide range of applications, from tapes, labels and sticky notes to self-adhesive solutions for all kinds of car trim. Yet some of the ingredients of PSAs also have come to be regarded as »sensitive« in another sense – and are under increasing pressure from regulators and health-conscious consumers.

Our Licocene® solutions for hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesive formulations can help manufacturers to strip away such issues from their self-stick products. Offering a new approach to formulating PSAs that are free of mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOSH/MOAHs) and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), they open the way to making better, less odor-emitting self-adhesives that also cause less fogging than conventional products when used in interior automotive applications.
