Royal Adhesives & Sealants recently announced plans to acquire substantially all of the assets of Clifton Adhesives. Clifton Adhesives is a major supplier to the aerospace, military, recreational and commercial marine market of thermoplastic and elastomeric adhesives and coatings, which are used in the fabrication of inflatable structures. The acquisition reportedly builds on Royal’s platform of adhesives, sealants and coatings solutions.

“We continue to identify leading niche companies that will enhance our product offerings to the markets in which we have chosen to compete,” said Ted Clark, CEO of Royal. “The addition of Clifton will broaden our customer base in the aircraft and marine markets. Clifton’s elastomeric adhesives will add to our growing portfolio of leading adhesives and sealants technologies, and we look forward to working with the Clifton team to successfully integrate the Clifton business into Royal.”
