Itac Managing Director
Two things matter most to Itac – high quality products and customer satisfaction. You can’t achieve the second without the first. We pride ourselves on the quality of our adhesives and non-adhesive coatings. Our innovative Statistical Process Control system (SPC), lets customers review ‘critical to function’ parameters of product batches, live on-line during actual manufacture, […]
In 2014, ITS News reported how Lumina Adhesives in Sweden had chosen Itac to manufacture a trial batch of adhesive for medical plasters. The unique adhesive was designed to enable the dressings to become non-sticky when exposed to UV light. In the interim years, extensive trials have taken place on a range of simple, easy […]
New research shows graphene can filter common salts from water to make it safe to drink Findings could eventually lead to affordable desalination technology Scientists from the University of Manchester, where miracle material Graphene was first isolated and characterised in 2004, have created a promising graphene oxide sieve capable of salt filtration. For some time, […]
When Itac customers make a request, we listen and we act. Such was the case when one major manufacturer, that we have supplied for many years, explained its needs. The hi-tech international company wanted us to produce a new coating, to the very highest level of consistent quality. It was a critical requirement that no […]
It’s summer but there is a new room at Itac where the temperature is a cool 5˚C. We are always looking to improve our service and we recently found a way to do just that for a major manufacturer. The way we worked previously with the organisation was well established. Our customer purchased the synthetic […]
Itac’s new factory, with its increased capacity, has already seen a renewed confidence in the company. Customers in each of Itac’s key market sectors, textiles, graphics and construction, are confidently placing larger orders than previously, safe in the knowledge of receiving the highest quality products in the fastest possible time.
For some time, many of our customers have been enjoying the benefits of our online Statistical Process Control System, which records and reviews ‘critical to function’ production parameters. The password-protected pages provide them with a quick and easy view of all aspects of each production batch. We have recently invested in upgrading the popular service. […]
In the last issue of ITS News we mentioned that we had started to install a new solvent storage tank farm at Itac. The installation was recently commissioned when Paul Armitt took possession of the new plant in a recent hand over ceremony. The new facility is now fully operational.
Computer and keypad operating systems Greater capacity 5000 litre mixer Improved production flow Pre batching Better liquid chemical storage facility Increased pipe diameter delivers solvent from tank to machine faster Separate clean room facility Mezzanine floor mounted machines, make filling and mixing, easier and safer than ever before. From mixing to production and dispatch, the […]
Itac’s large purpose built warehouse is a wonderfully well planned space, sited alongside the shop floor, with cold, ambient and warm storage facilities. It provides easy access for goods in and out. At a stroke, it has improved the company’s storage capacity and logistics of the operation.
As part of our policy of continuous investment, we have recently completed a major upgrade of our product development laboratory. At Itac we strive to keep abreast of developments in manufacturing methods and materials, which in turn lift the bar for smarter adhesives and coatings. One of today’s challenges is to produce products that can […]
Like some people, our products can be quite temperamental. Two years ago we reported that we had installed a cold storage facility with a temperature set at 5ºC to help extend the life of synthetic rubber. Now we have gone to the opposite end of the temperature spectrum by commissioning a hot box for heating […]
