Adhesive (Removable) - What is a removable adhesive?
A pressure sensitive adhesive characterised by low initial tack and low ultimate adhesion. The adhesive has enough tack to adhere a label securely to a substrate but it is also easily removed, with little to no adhesive residue left behind and no damage done to either the label or the substrate. These adhesives will, however, become permanent after extended periods of time or if they are exposed to more extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Removable adhesives are used to make temporary labels, which can be used to label items for short periods of time before the label is removed because it is no longer needed or is out of date.Go Back to Glossary
