Built to provide what the market demands
Ongoing investment in our facilities has given us the equipment needed for mass-scale batch production as well as small volume runs for lower quantity orders or custom formulations.
A leader in product development
Our product development team is continually working with the newest technologies to provide unique solutions for our customers’ applications. We not only seek improvements in product performance but also in user safety and experience. As an industry leader, we have mastered the most advanced polymer technology available to formulate hybrid polyether sealants, adhesives and coatings that set the benchmark for total product experience.
Custom product solutions
Sometimes our standard products do not meet the needs of a specific or unique application. Our research and engineering team specializes in developing tailored solutions that not only measure up to the task at hand, but often provide cost savings over other alternatives. Thanks to collaboration with the scientists and technologists at our Meridian Adhesives Group affiliates, this capability has never been stronger. Please inquire about your specific application.
“American Sealants has been instrumental in assisting our engineering department and research & development department in sourcing solutions. On one project, they worked with us for over a year to find the proper solution in joining two different metallic substrates while never once asking for a purchase order or money down. Their knowledge and expertise has enabled our company to focus on our continuous improvement campaign while making a smooth and cost effective manufacturing transition.”
