The Water-Based Adhesive Manufacturing Process: An Overview

Many industries use water-based glues, including the woodworking, paper packaging, paper and labelling industries to name a few. Water-based adhesives come in many ‘flavours’ including PVA, PVOH, Rubber latex and Starch compositions. Without getting too technical, we’re going to take a peek at what water-based adhesives are and how they’re made. Let’s dive in! What is

Major Impact of Texas Storm on the Adhesive Industry & Its Supply Chain

Sometimes, even the soundest supply chains are interrupted by major, once-in-a-century storms. A rare winter storm in Texas has unfortunately interfered with many industries, including the adhesive industry. Since the storm passed through, we’ve been experiencing a massive shortage in many water-based adhesives and hot melts and have seen the material costs for these products

Adhesives Found in Nature

Nature often inspires some of humanity’s best technologies. Glues are no exception. Our earliest adhesives were gathered from nature and even now, nature is showing us new compounds we can use to make even better glues. You may be surprised at some of the natural sources of glues, and which is the strongest adhesive we’ve
