What is a PSA Tape?

What is a PSA tape? PSA stands for (P) pressure (S) sensitive (A) adhesive tape.  Pressure sensitive adhesives are self-stick adhesives that do not require solvent, heat, or water activation and no special baking/curing processes.  PSA tapes require a simple peel and stick hand pressure installation process.  CS Hyde company provides four PSA adhesive options including:

  • Rubber adhesives – Hi initial bond strength, indoor use.
  • High bond Acrylic– Strong bonding ideal for adhesion to difficult-to-bond, Low Surface Energy surfaces like some plastics, powder-coats, foams, and oily metals. Outdoor use.
    • U.V. Resistance
    • Water Resistance
    • Chemical Resistance- gasoline, oil, Freon™ TF, sodium chloride solution, mild acids and alkali’s.
  • Acrylic adhesives – Bond strengthens over time, rated up to 250°F to 350°F, outdoor use.
  • Silicone adhesives – intended for clean release applications that withstand high temperatures rated up to 500°F. Indoor use.

CS Hyde Company is also a 3M™ Choice Converter which allows us accommodate specialty adhesives for applications including clarity, dielectric strength, and hard to bond to substrates.
