  • Publication number: 20210284869
    Abstract: Provided are methods for adhesively bonding profiles to substrate surface. An example method includes plasma-treating each of a profile surface and a first adhesive side of a layer of pressure sensitive adhesive. The pressure sensitive adhesive includes a) 40 to 70 wt %, based on the total weight of the pressure sensitive adhesive, of at least one poly(meth)acrylate; b) 15 to 50 wt %, based on the total weight of the pressure sensitive adhesive, of at least one synthetic rubber; and c) at least one tackifier compatible with the poly(meth)acrylate(s). The method further includes bonding the profile surface and the first adhesive side to one another, plasma-treating a second adhesive side of the layer of the pressure sensitive adhesive, and bonding the plasma-treated second adhesive side to the substrate surface.

  • Patent number: 10907076
    Abstract: Method of adhesively bonding two surfaces by means of a reactive adhesive film system comprising at least two adhesive films (F1 and F2), each comprising at least one reactive component (R1 and R2), adhesive bonding being effected by a reaction which requires the presence of both reactive components (R1 and R2), wherein, prior to adhesive bonding, a separating layer (T) which is impermeable to the reactive components is provided between the adhesive films which are to be brought into contact with one another for the reaction, and the separating layer (T) is removed at least in part by means of a laser in order to effect bonding, so that the adhesive films (F1 and F2) come into direct contact with one another and the reaction begins in the presence of both reactive components (R1 and R2), and reactive adhesive film system for use in this method.
