If you’re stuck deciding where to go to get information about a specialist adhesive manufacturer or a reliable adhesive supplier, then you’ve arrived at the right place! This blog takes a look at the different industry sectors and products that leading independent adhesive manufacturers, Anglo Adhesives, supply worldwide.

In 1905 Anglo Chemical Company Ltd was founded specifically to manufacture and supply adhesives to the footwear industry. Today, Anglo Adhesives, as the company is now known, has, in fact, journeyed full circle with a range of newly developed specialist adhesive products formulated especially for the revitalised footwear manufacturing industry. Our product range has expanded dramatically since our inception and we now manufacture and supply high quality adhesive products to markets as diverse as Education, Point Of Purchase (POP) and Construction.


Adhesive manufacturer to many industry sectors

Anglo Adhesives is a specialist adhesive manufacturer and supplier of both solvent-based and water-based adhesives to the following industries:

  • Point of purchase & footwear
  • Insulation & construction
  • Plumbing & pipe welding
  • PVC, bouncy castle & pond repairs
  • Polystyrene & model making
  • Education – art, woodworking & crafts
  • Furniture 
  • Packaging & bag sealing
  • Sign bonding
  • Acrylic bath repairs
  • Ministry of Defence

Flexible service. Bespoke products

The difference between Anglo Adhesives and our competitors is that as specialist adhesive manufacturers, we can be completely flexible to suit a client’s particular requirements, creating large or small volumes of bespoke adhesives.

“We can manufacture small batch sizes of adhesives, this is where the company has seen great growth over recent years. This is probably due to the variance of our churn sizes and filling equipment, along with our experienced staff. We also offer flexibility to our customers by making batch sizes that are not part of our standard production size or are a unique product. There are many advantages to doing this, one being to prevent storing too much of a product that could be affected by a shorter than normal shelf life,” explains Terry Lake, Chief Chemist, Anglo Adhesives.

We also offer a white labelling service with a toll manufacturing service for any type of product and quantity. 


Research & development

We pride ourselves on our ongoing programme of product development, driven by our extremely passionate technical team who, between them, have a wealth of experience regarding adhesive supply and manufacture across many industry sectors. 

Our mission is to develop unique and bespoke cost-effective adhesives that provide high performance and excellent coverage. The adhesives market is fast moving and requires constant review to ensure that we are developing the best products at the best price. In order to do this, we devote part of our product development time to research which ensures we keep up-to-date with the latest materials and formulae.


Working to industry standards

You don’t need to worry when you commission Anglo Adhesives to manufacture and supply adhesives for you. We are an active member of the British Adhesives and Sealants Association (BASA) and we are certified to ISO 9001 for Quality Management. Attaining these standards ensures that we fully comply with global and statutory regulations about labelling, storage and disposal.

In addition, within our new laboratory, we have state of the art testing facilities, where we make sure our adhesives surpass the performance characteristics required by Ministry of Defence specifications.
