Abstract

Delayed tack adhesive material, typically crystalline organic compositions, are characterized by their ability to remain in a tacky, supercooled ,metastable state for a period of time (open time) after activation. Open time is determined by crystal growth which returns the material to its non-tacky structured state. A typical crystalline orgaaic compound for use in this process is diphenyl phthalate.
