Pressure sensitive adhesives as the focus of process engineering, raw materials and processing plants

From 22 – 24 October 2018, 250 development technologists and representatives from the industry, research and academia from 13 countries followed the call to Munich to the 43rd Munich Adhesives and Finishing Symposium 2018. The focus of the annual event rotates annually from pressure sensitive adhesives to hot melt adhesives, to chemically and radiation curing systems in printing, gluing and converting. This year’s event focussed on Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA) for the eleventh time. Why? There is no one pressure sensitive adhesive and the market value is projected to reach USD 15.76 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.6% between 2016 and 2026: sufficient scope for a wide range of subjects to be dealt with in the 31 papers given on issues related to raw materials, PSA-systems, process engineering and processing plants, as well as the table-top presentations.
