Self-Wetting Adhesives

Adhesives Research’s optical bonding self-wetting adhesive technology is utilized as surface protection films for touch screens and flat panel displays. Self-wetting adhesives enable environmentally robust, high-quality optical bonds with low- or no-pressure lamination. The film offers “controlled adhesion,” and permits removability and reapplication, even after an extended period of time.

 Benefits of this technology:

  • Adhesive virtually self-applies by spontaneously “wetting out” onto smooth surfaces
  • Enables low- or no-pressure lamination
  • Ultra low peels without adhesive buildup
  • Cleanly removable/repositionable/reusable – even at extended periods of time
  • High shear resistance prevents displacement
  • Environmentally robust
  • Excellent optical properties
  • Supplied on scratch-and chemical-resistant, anti-glare and clear hard-coated films
  • Does not build triboelectric charge when removed


  • Surface protection films for touch screens and flat panel displays
