Soy-Based Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives: Trends and Global Markets
Publish Date: May 2019 | Category: Chemicals & Materials | Publisher: BCC Research | Status: Publish
This study covers quantitative and qualitative insights of soy-based adhesives for global, regional and application markets.
The objective of this report is to provide business planners, investors and other professionals with quantifiable market measurements and analyses that can help them formulate strategic business plans and make key investment decisions.
A soy-based adhesive is a type of adhesive formulated using soy flour and a proprietary crosslinking resin, which are blended together. The product is a water-based system. The resin reacts with the protein in the soy flour forming a durable, water-resistant thermoset adhesive that is comparable in strength and performance with petroleum-based adhesives.
Pressure-sensitive adhesives are used only on specific substrates for specific functions. The product is particularly designed for certain conditions and environments. The product works under extreme pressure conditions; as a result, the product is called a pressure-sensitive adhesive. Soy-based pressure-sensitive adhesives are non-reactive adhesives and perform only when the pressure is applied. The soy-based pressure-sensitive adhesive forms a bond under pressure; no solvent, water or heat is required to activate the adhesive. The product is used in pressure-sensitive tapes, labels, glue dots, note pads, automobile trim and a wide variety of other products.
With developments across industries, growing applications and the need for advanced technologies, there have been developments and advancements in the adhesive space. With new government regulations across the globe to protect animal and human life, the demand for bio-based and environmentally friendly adhesives has increased. Along with rising demand for renewable products, there has been a demand for a new class of advanced adhesive products. A new class of renewable pressure-sensitive adhesive can be designed and developed from soybean oil.

An adhesive—also commonly known as glue, cement, mucilage or paste—is a non-metallic material that can join two or more substrates using the adhesion mechanism (mechanism between adhesive and substrate) and cohesive mechanism (mechanism between two adhesives). The types of adhesives vary, depending on the type of material to be joined and the condition under which the material is joined. Based on the physical and chemical properties of an adhesive, adhesives are used in many industries for various applications.
Soy-based adhesives are a type of adhesive formulated using soy flour and a proprietary crosslinking resin, which are blended together. The product is a water-based system. The resin reacts with the protein in the soy flour forming a durable, water-resistant thermoset adhesive that is comparable in strength and performance with petroleum-based adhesives.
Soybeans contain around 34% carbohydrates, 20% oil, 40% protein and 4.9% ash. Soy oil is comprised of saturated and unsaturated triglycerides, whereas soybean carbohydrates consist of complex polysaccharides including cellulose, hemicelluloses and pectin. About 18 amino acids can be found in soy protein. Major soybean products commercially available in the market are soybean oil, soy flour, defatted soybean meal, soy protein concentrate (SPC) and soy protein isolate (SPI).
A pressure-sensitive adhesive is formed by copolymerizing two or more substances. To manufacture this product, soy-based pressure-sensitive adhesive soybean oil is epoxidized and hydrolyzed selectively on the ester group to afford a mixture of epoxidized fatty acids. The epoxidized fatty acid mixture is then polymerized directly, without further purification, to yield hydroxyl-functionalized polymers. The strengths of the resulting polymer make the polymer suitable for pressure-sensitive applications. The soy-based pressure-sensitive adhesive has pell strength, loop track, shear strength and viscoelastic properties. The soy-based pressure-sensitive adhesive is fully bio-based and potentially biodegradable.
The preparation process of the product does not require any toxic solvent that is harmful to the environment or human and animal life.
