Welcome to the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council's Technical Library, a free resource for the pressure sensitive adhesive tape industry.
For some 36 years, the Council has been promoting the exchange of high quality technical information through papers presented at PSTC events and published in its print proceedings. Now, PSTC is pleased to extend the value of that material through this new on-line technical library featuring papers presented at previous technical seminars.
Please remember that these papers are copyrighted materials belonging to the author, their respective company and PSTC. The intent of this electronic library is to offer an exchange of information to further understanding and promote the use of pressure sensitive adhesive tape as an alternative bonding system. PSTC is proud of its authors who have given of their time and obtained corporate support to present these papers.
Additional papers will be added to the electronic library about six months after each year's technical seminar.
We hope that you will enjoy using this FREE resource and look forward to your thoughts and suggestions for improving the new PSTC technical paper library.
