The newly acquired product lineup will reportedly be relaunched under Toyochem’s ORIBAIN™ series for industrial applications. Toyo Ink America’s (TIA) PSA division produces a range of solvent acrylic PSAs for tapes, labels and specialty applications.
“We are always challenging ourselves to develop and supply products that will reflect true value to the marketplace,” says Joe Sentendrey, gm-TIA PSA division. “These newly acquired one-part technologies will be an outstanding complement to our present one-part and two-part product line for a variety of applications, including VOC-free, low-outgas, LSE, thermal and chemical resistant, optical clarity, and others.”
“This move is a perfect fit for our business, both in terms of portfolio and strategic business direction,” says Satoru Takashima, president. “The newly acquired technology combined with our long-cultivated technology for high-performance, one-component PSAs and eco-friendly high-solid, one-component products are expected to generate significant synergies. We believe such new developments will contribute to the rapid expansion of this business, especially in areas we have yet to penetrate such as India, Turkey and the Middle East, as well as in emerging markets in Africa and Latin America.”
