RE: P2 for pressure sensitive tapes and labels

The PPRC technical reviews synthesize research information on P2 technologies, provide brief case studies, list pros/cons, review economic issues, and suggest needed areas of further research.  The latest review, which is currently beginning the peer revi
ew process, is on the use of alternative solvent-free adhesives in industry (e.g. tapes and labels).  The three technologies that were reviewed include:  waterborne, radiation (UV/EB) cured, and polyurethane reactive hot melt adhesives.  We are hoping tha
t the review will be available by the end of March.  Stay tuned for more, later.

Subject:  P2 for pressure sensitive tapes and labels


Does anyone have any experience with P2 in the pressure sensitive tapes
and/or labels sector that they would be willing to share?  I am already
aware of the EPA reports prepared on equipment cleaning.  I am writing about
pollution sources, especially air emissions from coatings used in the
"traditional" production process (and would appreciate background
information - including cost to operate pollution control equipment), and
then the pros and cons of various alternative coatings (or equipment that
uses less coating, or other P2 techniques).

Case studies of any aspect of P2 would be especially useful, but
particularly those reducing emissions from coatings.  Volunteers to peer
review what I produce would also be appreciated.  Please respond directly to
me at:  newmoa@tiac.net

Thank You,
