Conception d'étiquettes autoadhésives par microencapsulation d'adhésif

Abstract : The main objective of this investigation is to prepare innovative silicone liner-free labels. It can be achieved by the adhesive ‘self protection', thanks to its incorporation into microcapsules. This allows the preparation of ‘dry labels' gluing under the application of a pressure, which induces the rupture of the microcapsules, thus releasing the core material, a pressure sensitive adhesive. The first step was to analyse 3 water-based PSA in view of their encapsulation. Then, the most suitable adhesive was microencapsulated by coacervation (using biopolymer as shell) and by in situ polymerisation. Two other encapsulation processes (spray-cooling and spray-drying), were also carried out at the LAGEP and were compared with the 2 former processes. Coating colour formulations were prepared with spray-cooling microcapsules (the most adhesive ones). Coating trials were carried out with a Meyer rod, and by screen printing. Compatibility between microcapsules and the label making process, using a flexographic printing press, was determined. Finally, the mains characteristics of the prepared innovative products (adhesion, application pressure) were compared to industrial self-adhesive homologues, and found that they could be suitable for the preparation of silicon liner-free envelops and stamps.
