Coating: A few microns of glue applied with extreme precision for complete control in bonding
Involving chemistry, aeraulics, mechanics, rheology, thermodynamics, electrical engineering, industrial computing and video control, coating is a complex process that draws on a multitude of disciplines.
Ensuring greater precision, control, performance and energy efficiency, adhesive coating technology has improved drastically since Adhex was founded. Our proactive investment policy ensures that we use the most up-to-date tools and that working conditions for Adhex operators are consistently improved.Adhex possesses 5 highly productive coating lines able to coat adhesives of various thickness and chemical types, all located in controlled atmosphere rooms (cleanrooms) to protect
against possible pollution. Our adhesive masses are mixed according to rigorous protocols and de-bubbling and filtration processes prevent contamination by impurities.From no-contact thickness control, video surveillance, continuous logging of production parameters and product tracing by barcode, every step of the process is designed to achieve a flawless result.
Technology at Adhex
Industrial customers require "tailor-made" solutions that align with their manufacturing methods, enhance product performance and reduce production costs. Our in-house expertise in over 20 conversion technologies allows us to develop the right product for every need and adapt our adhesives for custom usages.
What does our technology allow us to do?Multilayer lamination, perforation, embossing, coil cutting, cutting to length, cross-cutting, label printing by screen-print, flexography, digital printing, 3D printing, metal printing, rotary die cutting, flatbed die cutting, digital die cutting with plotter or laser, low dimensional tolerance die cutting or half-cutting, island placement, thermoforming, robot glue application, conversion of large parts into cardboard...
Adhex engineers are early adopters of the latest technological developments brought about by Industry 4.0, including robotization, camera control and digital operator assistance. Our teams rely on these advanced tools to meet customer requirements and create new products.In addition to offering custom industrial solutions, we're able to develop digital interfaces such as database interrogation or modelling systems.
Committed to solvent-free adhesives
Adhex prioritizes solvent-free adhesives in all new product development.
Our teams have been working for over 10 years to create solvent-free adhesives that rival traditional formulations, as well as to adapt production equipment to meet our objective.As a result of our research and dedication, we've produced a new line of high-performance coatings that has allowed us to reach a new milestone in the development of solvent-free solutions.
