This new AWAreness™ Report, Global Adhesive & Adhesive Technology Assessment for Pressure-sensitive Materials 2012, provides an independent assessment of pressuresensitive technology, and focuses on the major formulations used on pressure-sensitive laminates - solvent, aqueous, and hot melt (including radiation cured).
The geographical focus is global and the study presents detailed information on adhesives for laminate production in key pressure-sensitive market segments, including labelstock, tape, graphic arts, and medical.
In compiling the information for this study, we have utilized our extensive contacts among polymer and adhesive suppliers and adhesive coating companies in each of the specifi ed market segments - to which we have added a search of available published information relevant to this market.
Our sources of information for this report include, but are not limited to, interviews and input from companies across the value chain, a review of all available published information related to our study, analysis of relevant trade and industry statistics, and other published AWA studies and analysis related to raw material end user markets. Global Adhesive & Adhesive Technology Assessment for Pressure-sensitive Materials 2012 uses the value chain as an important tool for putting the pressure-sensitive market into perspective.
