The chapters in this book cover a wide and diverse range of topics, providing
a detailed discussion of each.
From the Preface: The purpose of these books is to present new information
in the area of interest to pressure sensitive adhesive researchers and manufacturers.
While most of the subjects have been discussed and published at various meetings,
the book format allows to include much more detail than it is possible in a
paper intended for a brief presentation during a technical meeting...This volume
is heavily oriented towards the pressure sensitive adhesive research carried
out in Japan. Japanese research always had an important place in the overall
effort to advance the understanding of pressure sensitive adhesive behavior...
Target Audience: Highly recommended for all professionals, especially researchers,
using or formulating pressure sensitive adhesives.
