Abstract

Acrylic pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) have a range of applications in industry, such as medical products, aircraft, space shuttles, electrical devices, optical products, and automobiles, etc. In this study, acrylic PSAs with fluorinated groups were synthesized using 2,2,2-trifluoroethyl methacrylate (TFMA) under UV radiation. The surface properties and adhesion strength were measured. The results showed that the addition of TFMA reduced the surface energy of the PSAs and improved the adhesion strength. POLYM. ENG.
