Adhesives that can be repositioned or removed are used for many applications including graphics films, flexographic plate mounting, Point-of-Purchase (POP) displays and general mounting. The specific requirements are as varied as the applications themselves. Depending on the application, they must allow a user to reposition a product or material during the initial application or remove it cleanly once it has reached the end of its use.
For these applications, Avery Dennison Performance Polymers offers a portfolio of specially designed pressure-sensitive adhesives, including solvent-based, toluene-free repositionable adhesives. Adhesives offering short-term repositionability are designed with low tack and slow adhesion build up to allow for temporary repositioning of product or material during application. Whereas long-term removable adhesives are engineered with low peel for easy removal from 1 to 60 days with no adhesive residue.
