H.B. Fuller acquires Liquamelt sustainable adhesive technology



Published April 18, 2011
H.B. Fuller Company has acquired the assets of privately held Liquamelt Corp., an Ohio-based manufacturer and marketer of the patented Liquamelt adhesive system. Liquamelt Corp. currently employs eight people. In addition to the material and equipment patents, the principal assets acquired include equipment and inventory. The Liquamelt system is expected to generate less than $1 million in revenue in 2011. The financial results of this business will be included in the H.B. Fuller's North America operating segment. The Liquamelt adhesive system will be available exclusively from H.B. Fuller. Liquamelt adhesive is flowable at room temperature and creates a fast-bonding, high-performing adhesive solution. It enables room temperature storage and handling of adhesive, where today traditional hot-melt tank and hose temperatures reach as high as 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Liquamelt adhesive contains greater than 40 percent renewable raw materials, allows for significant mileage improvements and results in reduced overall energy consumption, according to the company.
