November 1, 2015
Solvay Specialty Polymers, a global supplier of high-performance thermoplastics, recently announced that S+P Samson GmbH, a manufacturer of specialty labels for industrial applications, has selected Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) film for the inlay of its new Structobond® labels for medical instrument and device applications.
The U.S. is the world’s largest specialty chemicals market, estimated at $208 billion. As a subsector of this market, the coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE) markets accounted for over half, or $107 billion, in 2014.
The production of both insulating glass and curtain walls incorporates bonding and sealing steps that use multi-component adhesives. The success of these bonding and sealing steps depends on proper mixing and accurate, on-ratio dispensing of the adhesive components.
Bioadhesives can address several unmet needs in key industries like healthcare and pulp and paper.

Vast technological capabilities and the addition of more viable solutions have gradually reduced unmet needs across several industries. Many bioadhesive vendors are currently licensing new solutions to product developers that are looking to strengthen their portfolios—and market positions
To create proper bonds for pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs), both the adhesive properties and substrate properties are critical. The highest concerns for the substrate are the surface chemistry and surface roughness.
This issue is a special one for the ASI staff, as it includes the announcement of the winner of the ASI Readers’ Choice Awards! Innovation is the backbone of the adhesives and sealants industry, and we created the ASI Readers’ Choice Awards to honor all of the industry’s hard work and ingenuity.
