Key Technology Expert to Present During TECH 35 Session
The Dow Corning Corporation Pressure
Sensitive Industry team will exhibit in Booth 13 at the Pressure Sensitive Tape
Council’s (PSTC) Tape
Summit 2012, from April 30 to May 4, at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade
Center in Boston.
Dow Corning will exhibit its lineup of low adhesion, pressure sensitive
adhesives (PSAs) and new hard coating materials for protective film
applications. Silicone-based technology offers stable adhesion over time and
superior wet ability and transparency as well as better mar resistance and
anti-scratch than current organic PSAs on PET technology.
In addition to the exhibition, Kyle Rhodes, Dow Corning application
engineering technical specialist, is confirmed to present, “Surface Protection
of Optical Films and Glass During and After Assembly” during the 2 p.m. TECH 35
session on Wednesday, May 2.
“We are excited to illustrate our proven and innovative silicones for the
pressure sensitive adhesives market,” said Christian Velasquez,
Dow Corning’s global market director for the Pressure Sensitive Industry.
“The development of our new, low adhesion, surface protective, pressure
sensitive adhesives broadens the solution set that Dow Corning can offer
customers seeking to protect electronic displays and touch screen enabled
Dow Corning® brand silicone pressure sensitive adhesives offer
critical advantages that organic adhesives such as acrylic, natural rubber and
other competing materials cannot match. Advantages include an excellent service
temperature range, conformability, adhesion to low energy surfaces and adhesive
tack.To learn more about Dow Corning® Pressure Sensitive Solutions,
