Acumeter and Adherent Laboratories Announce Joint Laboratory Venture

Published on 2004-04-19. Author : SpecialChem


Acumeter Laboratories is pleased to announce that Adherent Laboratories will now run May Coating Technologies' (a division of Acumeter Laboratories, Inc.) customer lab trials. The people of Adherent Laboratories share over 70 patents in the areas of hot melt, water-based, epoxy, and urethane adhesives. Also each principal has over 30 years of experience in adhesives and materials product development. Acumeter Laboratories, Inc., has over 50 years experience designing and manufacturing precision web coating, converting and hot-melt processing equipment.

As part of this agreement, Adherent Laboratories has purchased the May Coating Technologies' laboratory coating equipment. In addition, Don Albrecht, May Coating Technologies' research manager, has now joined Adherent Laboratories and will continue to run May Coating's lab trials on May Coating equipment. Don will also continue his work on process development issues and help with May Coating design requirements, as needed.

Both companies are very pleased with this agreement. Acumeter believes customers will not experience any disruption of service and is certain that their customers will continue to receive the highest quality lab work. With Adherent Laboratories' special expertise in adhesive and coating formulation, the Laboratory can now be of service to customers earlier in the product development process, at the chemical compounding and selection stage. Through this new arrangement, Acumeter and Adherent Laboratories will continue to offer the same security and confidentiality that our clients have valued for years.

Because of this change, both companies moved to new facilities on March 29, 2004. The telephone, fax, website and e-mail contact information for each company will not change.

Direct inquiries regarding web coating, converting and thermoplastic processing to Acumeter's May Coating Technologies division. Inquiries regarding chemical compounding, laboratory trials and adhesive formulation should be directed to Adherent Laboratories. Inquiries regarding process development can be directed to either company.
