As a leading industrial adhesive manufacturer, Intercol specialises in producing adhesives for multiple industries worldwide. We believe you can’t spent one hour in an urban area, without seeing an application that we serve. Our adhesives and coatings are seen in food-packaging, automotive, mattresses, whitegoods, parcel boxes, books, anti-graffity coatings and even involved in seeds.
A professional company with innovative R&D and technical specialists
Whilst some companies opt to manufacture consumer adhesives such as those used by hobbyists, Intercol has been creating advanced industrial adhesive formulations since 1972. We aren’t seen in a DIY market, at least, not as ready to use adhesive. Many packagings still hide our adhesive unseen. And still, some suppliers to DIY markets may rely on our toll blending private label adhesives
Over the years, the global industrial adhesives market has grown significantly. Even more growth is expected because of the continued rise in demand from the automotive, packaging and parcel industries.
Packaging adhesives for consumer products
At Intercol, packaging and labelling are two of our largest product sectors in the FMCG market, FMCG is an abbreviation of Fast Moving Consumer Goods, or Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG).
However we manufacture industrial adhesives for many more industries such as woodworking, filtration, product assembly, mattress construction, bookbinding, and automotive and transport.
Hot melt adhesives
One of the most popular adhesive technologies used today is hot melts due to factors such as their ease of use and flexibility. Intercol manufactures and supplies hot-melt adhesives across the globe as well as water-based adhesives for applications such as labelling, dextrin and starch adhesives for paper lamination, solvent-based adhesives used in construction, packaging and paper handling, and dispersion adhesives. Eco-friendly sacrificial coatings to protect surfaces from graffiti and environmental pollution, and adhesive cleaners are also included in our product portfolio.
Over decades of investment in product development and customer-focused innovation, we have grown from a local adhesive manufacturer to a worldwide supplier. Because of our first-class facilities and our talented research and development team, we can offer customised adhesive solutions, no matter how complex the application requirement.
