Posted by IndustryNet on Friday, August 11, 2017

100000082frustratedbusinessmanAccording to IndustryNet, there are 457 adhesive companies employing 19,628 individuals nationally. Sales in the industry topped $629 million last year alone. Because of this abundance of options, selecting right adhesive supplier can be a daunting task.

In order to narrow the list down, manufacturers should select adhesive suppliers that can provide the following:

1. High temperatures

Whether you need to bond plastics at 400 degrees or ceramics at 4000 degrees, you need the bond to seal tightly and remain sturdy. Cotronics, based in Brooklyn, NY, carries a wide range of products specifically designed to meet your high-temperature needs without cracking or degrading the bond. Cotronics specializes in ceramics, offering sealants, repair materials, and both rigid and flexible bonding materials.

2. Structural applications.

If you are looking for an adhesive strong enough to bond turbine blades or versatile enough to join a filter to metal or plastic, Innovative Resin Systems has your product. IRS produces epoxy adhesives, one- and two-component elastomer-modified epoxies, and low-odor resins at its home base in Newark, NJ.

3. Versatility

Some bonding jobs require more than one type of adhesive. Whether you need to adhere two different substrates or two metals as part of the same project, one company meets your needs. Master Bond, in Hackensack, NJ, combines the quality you desire with the quantity you require. With over 3,000 grades of adhesives, Master Bond is sure to have one that is ideally suited for your project.

4. One-stop shopping640px-AdhesivesForHouseUse004

 Adhesive & Equipment, Inc. is your go-to source for adhesives and applicators. This integration allows this Comstock, Park MI-based company to ensure that you have both the correct hot-melt adhesive and the proper applicator for your job. Adhesive & Equipment services OEM equipment for Nordson, Graco, Valcon Meton, and others and stocks a variety of adhesives from 3M, H.B. Fuller, Itw Plexus, LocknPop, and many more companies.

5. One-of-a-kind jobs

Many companies sell adhesives, but very few are willing to invent an adhesive specific to your needs. E & H Laminating & Slitting Company built its reputation on innovation. With their on-site testing facility in Paterson, NJ, E & H thoroughly tests all of its products to ensure that they meet and exceed industry standards and your needs. Eco-friendly, all of E & H's products surpass local, state, and national environmental and emissions controls.

6. Customized and complete
