Combined Effect of Chain Extension and Supramolecular Interactions on Rheological and Adhesive Properties of Acrylic Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives

Abstract : A new approach for the elaboration of low molecular weights pressure-sensitive-adhesives based on supramolecular chemistry is explored. The synthesis of model systems coupled with probe-tack tests and rheological experiments highlights the influence of the transient network formed by supramolecular bonds on the adhesion energy. The first step of our approach consists in synthesizing poly(butylacrylate-co-glycidyl methacrylate) copolymers from a difunctional initiator, able to self-associate by four hydrogen bonds between urea groups. Linear copolymers with a low dispersity (M n =10kg/mol, Ip<1.4) have been synthesized via Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization. Films of the copolymers were then partially cross-linked through reaction of the epoxy functions with a diamine. The systematic variation of the average ratio of glycidyl methacrylate and diamine per copolymer shed light on the respective role played by the supramolecular interactions (between bis-urea groups and with the side chains) and by the chains extension and branching induced by the diamine/epoxy reaction. In this strategy, the adhesive performance can be optimized by modifying the strength of stickers (via the structure of the supramolecular initiator, for instance) and the polymer network (e.g. via the length and level of branching of the copolymer chains) in order to approach commercial PSA-like properties (high debonding energy and clean removal).
