Final Report - NSHAPE (Designed Nanoscale Heterogeneities for Controlling Water-Borne Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive Performance)

Project ID: 505442
Funded under: FP6-NMP


The pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) industry is an important component of the European economy which was influenced by the recently imposed environmental and health regulations. As a result, innovative water borne PSAs (wb-PSAs) with various benefits were produced; however they still demonstrate limited adhesive strength and ability to bond to non-polar substrates in comparison with conventional materials. The EU-funded NSHAPE project aimed to overcome these limitations and establish strategies to effectively control wb-PSAs' performance.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project objectives and summarises the undertaken activities and their principal achievements. The document also refers to the anticipated NSHAPE impact and closes with an analysis of the approaches that were implemented by the various work packages.
