Custom Adhesive Products to Fit Your Specific Requirements
We design our adhesive systems to provide the right product for your application instead of limiting your options to “off the shelf” choices. Ameri-Cal’s in-depth knowledge and rich history of adhesive systems and processing techniques allow for nearly limitless customization capabilities to fit your application needs.
In-House Lab Allows for On-Site Research & Development
Ameri-Cal’s adhesive chemistry includes high-performance acrylic and rubber-based polymers that can be either emulsion or solvent based with coat weights ranging from 0.8 to 6.0 dry mils. Our full-service lab is equipped to allow for in-house research and design, which gives us the ability to develop and test countless variations of any custom adhesive products without having to expend the time or money on an outside lab’s resources.
Extensive Experience with Many Adhesive Types
- Acrylic adhesives are optimal for long-term use due to their ability to withstand UV light, high temperatures, and chemical exposure.
- Rubber adhesives are a cost-effective solution with decent tack and shear properties. They can be composed of either natural or synthetic elastomers, which offer slightly varying advantages.
- Urethane adheres well to acrylics, glass, rubber, and many metals, while also providing lightweight and impact resistant properties.
- Hybrid adhesives combine the benefits of silicones and polyurethanes to create versatile products with the ability to bond previously un-bondable materials.
Environmentally Friendly Products
Our “Green Initiative” is dedicated to continually reducing the environmental impact of both Ameri-Cal’s manufacturing and intended usage of our products. As a result of superior emulsion adhesive performance, the use of solvent adhesives in certain applications can sometimes be eliminated thereby limiting incineration amounts.
