3MTM UV Screen Printable Adhesive

The idea of screen printable adhesives has been around for quite a while because they eliminate the need to die-cut sheets of laminating adhesive material, thus reducing wasted materials and removing time-consuming handling steps from the production process.Solvent-based and water-based versions have been used in production for years, and under the right circumstances, they can be very effective. Until now, because of special processing requirements and limitations, screen printable adhesives have remained somewhat of a specialty item.
