The method also comprises forming PSA layers which impregnate the substrate and which are obtained by drying the composition. These PSA layers impregnate the substrate so that the area of gaps observed in a vertical cross-section perpendicular to the machine direction of the substrate is about 500 ?m2/400 ?m or less.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for protection of cosmetic surfaces on electronic devices and adhesive overflow prevention are provided. In particular, an assembly for protecting a cosmetic surface can include a heat activated adhesive, such as a heat active film adhesive (“HAF”), which can be used to secure a mesh to the cosmetic surface. In some embodiments, a protective layer having a center layer laminated between two layers of heat activated adhesive can be used to protect the cosmetic surface from scratches caused by the mesh. In some embodiments, one or more hot shoes can be used to cross-link the heat activated adhesives to the mesh and the cosmetic surface. Because the shape of a shoe can influence the flow of heat activated adhesives during cross-linking, different shoes can be selected in order to minimize overflow in certain locations in the assembly.
