Tack Properties of Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive-Coated Fiber Assemblies — •Volker Körstgens, Jorge Corella Puertas, and Peter Müller-Buschbaum — TU München, Physik-Department, LS Funktionelle Materialien, James-Franck-Str. 1, 85748 Garching
For the mechanical characterization of the adhesive bond of pressure-sensitive adhesives one has to take into account the geometry of the adherents and the kind of stress applied. We present a technique, which allows for the measurement of tack for assemblies of fibers coated with pressure-sensitive adhesives using customized cylindrical composite stamps . Key element of the method is the proposed technique to achieve monolayers of parallel-aligned fibers as a fiber assembly. With the adapted probe tack test we investigated the tack properties of a polymer blend of poly(vinylpyrrolidone-co-vinylacetate) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) coated on human hair. This composition serves as a simple model system for hair styling products. The influence of different PEG contents and of the humidity on the tack is demonstrated. Nylon fibers with different diameters are studied as references.  V. Körstgens et al., ACS Appl. Polym. Mater. 2, 3189-3195 (2020).
