Structural Adhesive

Innovation is the process of turning ideas into manufacturable and marketable form

—American software engineer Watts Humphrey

 

Creating a new product line from scratch, is both tedious and exhilarating. When you pursue a particular chemical through a battery of tests, it may appear to be a break through, only to fail some later test. Sometimes all you learn is what doesn't work.

Then there are the days when you walk out of the lab knowing you just developed the strongest structural acrylic that's ever been tested in the Adhesive R&D Lab.

The technology and process that have been developed, allow Adhesive R&D to cost effectively deliver variations to maximize fit. These products are the fruits of our innovative spirit.
