The International Pressure-sensitive Adhesive Workshop, organised by AWA Alexander Watson Associates in co-operation with Chemsultants International, is now an established feature of the industry’s events calendar, and this year’s workshop will take place at the Park Plaza Vondelpark, Amsterdam, NL, on 6 and 7 November. Participants from a variety of disciplines -- sales, marketing, research, technical support, quality control and production – can benefit from this technical primer, whether they are newcomers to the world of pressure-sensitive adhesives, spanning labels, tapes, and many industrial end uses -- or industry professionals requiring a technical briefing.
Covering all the basics of PSA products, including their design, manufacture, conversion, and end use, the two-day program also provides participants with an understanding of the various market sectors where pressure-sensitive adhesives find use as well as the capabilities of the different adhesive types – solvent, hot melt, and emulsion – and their different applications.
Established 14 years ago, the International Pressure-sensitive Adhesive Workshop alternates in a two-year cycle between Europe and the USA, and brings together the specialist technical expertise of Chemsultants International and the focussed in-depth knowledge of market researchers AWA Alexander Watson Associates.
