APPLIANCE

Appliance industry professionals need adhesive products that solve two main challenges. The first is to create an aesthetically pleasing look, with little to no damage done to the product’s surface. An attractive, polished finish is vital.

The second, of course, is to adhere to substrates as needed. Depending on the appliance, additional functions could include providing noise reduction and/or thermal insulation, protecting components from moisture, and preventing damage to a surface during production or transportation.

Your source for appliance adhesive tape solutions is Strouse. We design tapes that meet your functionality needs: component marking, surface protection, mounting, injection, transport, and more. Our adhesive tape solutions enhance whatever appliance being produced:

  • Refrigerator
  • Freezer
  • Oven
  • Dishwasher

MEDICAL

A medical device normally has multiple goals: performance, compliance, cost, and timelines. All are important, and all are dependent on the adhesive you use. Strouse adhesive engineers treat each medical device as its own unique product, creating converting solutions with a focus on how that device will perform in the long-term.

Choosing an adhesive for a medical application usually is determined by its use. What needs to be done?
  • Hold device components together
  • Cover a device
  • Move fluid
  • Stick a device to skin
  • Deliver an active ingredient through skin
Unlike every other industry we serve, being a 3M Preferred Converter isn’t quite enough. Strouse is also a 3M Preferred Converter of 3M Medical Materials and Technologies, a rarity among the thousands of U.S. converters.
