Where Concepts Become Custom Solutions

Case study: Pressure sensitive adhesive

A recent American Flexible customer had to mount a small item onto a unit but didn’t want to ruin the aesthetics of the unit by having fasteners or rivets showing. Also, they wanted to be able to mount the part without using a lot of labor.

Our solution:

We brought the use of pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) to the customer as a possible solution. 

A few “best choice” options were tested by AFP and the customer. 

During testing, it was discovered peeling the release liner away from the PSA’s was fairly difficult and ate up time.  AFP’s people went to work and came up with a solution to cut the release liner on one side so it could be peeled off much like the liner on a bandage. 

The customer loved the idea and is using the product today!

Their benefits from partnering with AFP:

  • Solved the mounting issue
  • Solved the production time issue
  • Supplied at a competitive price
