Technical Paper -
A series of pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) with different monomer composition was prepared using emulsion polymerisation. The monomers were butyl acrylate (BA), 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate (2-HEA), acrylic acid (AA) and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate (2-EHA). The adhesive performance was studied at 4%, 8% and 12% 2-EHA content based on total monomer (BOTM) composition. The adhesives obtained with constant...
