What is Adhesive Converting?

Posted by Sue Chambers Dec 11, 2013 3:46:00 PM

Strouse is an adhesive converter. But what does that mean? In it's simplest form we take raw material adhesive and 'convert' or turn this into usable parts. Converting isn't just limited to pressure sensitive adhesives though. Many raw materials such as papers, foams, plastics, and metals can be converted.

These materials often come in large rolls that are of little or no use at all to customers. Master rolls can be too large to effectively handle,not the shape or size you need, or not finished the way you need it. That's when manufacturers make the call to Strouse.

Converting materials can be done multiple ways. As an adhesive converter, Strouse die cuts, laminates, slits, spools, laser cuts , and flash cuts adhesives, foams, foils, and films. All of these techniques are unique and specific to the application or industry.
