Azcoat can apply a wide variety of adhesives
to an array of products. Some examples include specialty labels
like the ones used on fruit. These labels had to be FDA approved
for food contact, plus be able to stick to a round, sometimes
moist, smooth surface. Azcoat sucessfully developed these
specialty labels that are now used on many food items!
Adhesives: Azcoat has manufactured another specialty label,
one that adheres in cold or ice water, but removes easily
in hot water. This special label makes recycling easy. This
particular label was used on wine bottles, however the applications
for this type of product are endless when considering the
need for green solutions for packaging and labeling.
Since Azcoat doesnt use any solvents and all adhesives
and coatings are aqueous based, many new, environmentally
friendly labeling products come out of our factory.
Other adhesives can be pressure sensitive
or not, depending on your needs. The ability to add adhesives
to substrates is one of Azcoats strengths. One area that is
out of Azcoats capabilities is in the sanitary / medical grade
sector. It may be possible that Azcoat could manufacture products
of this nature, but for the most part this is not our specialty.
Some More Adhesives

to these adhesives they become tacky.
Dissolves in water, or

Also can be an adhesive that is extremely thick in order
to adhere to rough surfaces like brick, rust, pipes,
cinder block etc.
Commercial / Industrial

is basically used in industry for a wide variety of uses.
Sometimes industrial grade refers to where the adhesive
is used, most often it refers to the strength or permanence
of the adhesive.
Rubber based adhesives.
