Novamelt-Jowat LLC, a joint venture between German companies Novamelt and Jowat AG, has announced plans to both produce and distribute pressure-sensitive adhesives and UV-curing PSAs in the United States. Construction of a new manufacturing plant on the Jowat Corp. premises near High Point, NC, is expected to be completed in March. Like Novamelt in Germany, the joint venture company will house application technology labs that will allow customers to test coatings on site.
