Adhesives, Sealants, Glues, and Caulks Manufacturing

Industry Overview:

Adhesives, sealants, glues, and caulks play an integral part of our everyday lives, even from before we are born. Without these products, there would be no ultrasounds for expectant parents to check on their unborn children. They are used for babies’ diapers, children’s toys and teenagers’ electronics. Adults rely on them to ensure their homes protect them from the elements and to maximize energy efficiency.

Blue- and white-collar workers alike rely on adhesives, sealants, glues, and caulks to make the workplace run smoothly. Construction workers depend on them to connect hammer head to handle, and CEOs expect them to hold together their briefcases and patent leather shoes. Everything from hearing aids to military aircraft are dependent on these products.

Common Applications:
  • Meter/mix/dispense process
  • Automation
  • Testing standards
  • Curing
  • Hot-melt, liquid-adhesive patterns
  • Polymers, waxers, filers and additives
  • Specialty sealants
  • Nanoparticles
