Ameri-Cal Inc. redefines “industry standard” for pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) with the launch of its newly developed product, the A-90 PSA. A-90 becomes the class leader at ambient and high-temperature shear compared to the current industry standard. Whereas other high-shear adhesives can have issues wetting or getting a good grip on the intended surface, A-90 is unique among this class of adhesives, simultaneously supplying higher tack and stronger, long-term adhesion.
In one critical performance measure, the A-90 exhibited excellent solvent resistance in a gasoline immersion test. A peel test shows the A-90 meets or exceeds industry standard performance for 72-hour dwell at room temperature on 2 MIL PET facestock. Experience ultra-clean die cutting due to the A-90 PSA’s high temperature shear performance.
Its adhesion strength at higher temperatures makes the A-90 PSA an excellent choice for electronics, automotive under-hood projects and other applications in general manufacturing that require strong, long-lasting bonding properties.
The A-90 is designed for polar surfaces with medium to high-surface energy. Americ-Cal’s new A-90 PSA is optically clear and UV stable, available on transfer film or laminated facestock on either 2 MIL or 5 MIL thicknesses.
The development team set out to meet a request from customers who had asked Ameri-Cal to match a big box store product. The resulting product, the A-90, met and/or exceeded expectations with impressive performance data, setting a new industry standard for that class of adhesive. Customers will frequently turn to Ameri-Cal when catalog or off-the-shelf products fail to meet their specifications.
