Adhesives Research (AR) is an independent developer and manufacturer of pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs), tapes, specialty films, coatings, laminates, release liners and drug delivery systems. Our R&D and manufacturing facilities located in Glen Rock, PA (USA) and Limerick, Ireland support our product development efforts for customers around the globe.
AR’s products are tailored to meet the specific needs of a unique customer or market segment. We accomplish this through a robust, documented product development process that fosters collaboration between our customers and dedicated, cross-functional teams of chemists, scientists and engineers.
The result of our over 50 years of problem solving experience is a vast “technology toolbox” comprised of a wide range of functional adhesive chemistries and core technologies. These building blocks provide the formulation flexibility needed to quickly undertake new application challenges and product development.
This same flexibility exists in our integrated manufacturing processes, enabling us to produce tailored products to each customer’s specifications.
Our capabilities include:
- Custom polymer synthesis
- Adhesive mixing and compounding
- Coating, including segregated manufacturing lines for medical and pharmaceutical products
