Electrical Conductivity

Generally polymer based adhesives and coatings tend to be electrically resistive. However, specialised additives can be used to increase the conductivity of the polymer matrix to offer either static dissipative or electrically conductive properties. Polymer based adhesives and coatings have been modified to increase the conductivity of products such as ECG electrodes, industrial heated blankets for temperature control, and smart wearable technology.

Anti-Microbial

Anti-microbial coatings are generally resistant to the growth of microbial species. Additives that resist the growth of many different types of microbe can be formulated into coatings to impart antimicrobial activity. Anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral coatings are all examples of anti-microbial coatings with different active species included to impart the desired effects. Anti-microbial coatings are applied on food conveyor belting, boat and haulage canopies, food packaging, and in hand sanitisers.

Food Contact

Certain end use applications for adhesives and coatings are in industry applications in contact with food or other products where purity and cleanliness are critical. ITAC can source raw materials that are compatible with EU, US and other global regulations for use in their formulations.

Medical Grade Products

Adhesives or coatings intending for use in medical applications require very high purity ingredients and high cleanliness manufacturing processes. Pharmacopoeia grade raw materials should be used in their formulations.
