This issue marks the publication of ASI’s 17th annual Buyers’ Guide, a purchasing and applications resource for raw materials, equipment and services used to manufacture adhesives and sealants, pressure sensitives, and adhesives and sealants products such as tapes and labels. Even though the guide has been established as a valuable tool to the industry, updating and expanding it is an ambitious, year-round undertaking. We make every effort to provide you with a comprehensive, user-friendly product.

How the Guide Is Organized

The Buyers’ Guide is divided into five main sections: Associations, Product Index, Product Listings, and Suppliers and Distributors. The Product Listings are divided into eight major categories: Additives and Chemical Specialties; Oils and Fatty Acids; Resins and Base Polymers; Pigments and Dyes, Dry/Dispersions; Solvents; Containers, Packaging and Material Handling; Equipment; and Services.

Looking Up a Manufacturer, Product or Service

If you know the name of the manufacturer(s), go directly to the Supplier Listings to find out more about the company. The Supplier Listings provide addresses, key personnel, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail, and website addresses, as well as a brief description of the supplier companies.

If you do not know the names of the manufacturers who supply the products of interest, simply refer to the Product Index. Products are listed alphabetically under each of the major categories. Find the appropriate page and go to the Product Listings section where an alphabetical listing of manufacturers/suppliers appears under each product heading. Advertising companies are listed in boldface type, and the page numbers of those ads are referenced. Find the companies of interest and proceed to the ad and the Supplier Listings.

How to Use the Online Buyers' Guide

You can also find the Buyers’ Guide in a fully searchable format online at www.adhesivesmag.com/buyersguide. The online Buyers’ Guide includes extras such as hotlinks, spec sheets and videos for select suppliers.

How to Contact Us

Your suggestions for making this guide more useful are always welcome. If you want to request new categories, or if you are a supplier to the industry and would like to receive information on purchasing listings for the online guide or next year’s print edition, please contact Peg Van Winkle, inside sales, at vanwinklep@bnpmedia.com, or call (614) 760-4222.
