Performance Improvement of Latex-based PSAs Using Polymer Microstructure Control

Lili Qie
This thesis aims to improve the performance of latex-based pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs). PSA performance is usually evaluated by tack, peel strength and shear strength. Tack and peel strength characterize a PSA’s bonding strength to a substrate while shear strength reflects a PSA’s capability to resist shear deformation. In general, increasing shear strength leads to a decrease in tack and peel strength. While there are several commercial PSA synthesis methods, the two most important methods consist...
