Pressure Sensitive Labels

Pressure-sensitive labels are adhesive which forms bond when pressure is applied to marry the adhesive with the adhered. No solvent, water, or head is needed to activate the adhesive. As the name "pressure-sensitive" indicates, the degree of bond is influenced by the amount of pressure which is used to apply the adhesive to the surface. Pressure-sensitive adhesives are designed for either permanent or removable applications.
