Pressure Sensitive Adhesives

Silicone adhesives have excellent heat resistance, cold resistance, dielectric properties and removability, and of fer good adhesion (pressure-sensitive) to a wide array of substrates. They make ideal adhesives for tapes, protective films and other applications where reliability is key.
