Dural manufactures a full line of industrial adhesives and coatings based on the following seven technologies.
Dural manufactures compounded specialties based on PVAs, VAEs, acrylics, dextrines, and natural and synthetic rubbers. These adhesives are commonly referred to as "white glues", "cold glues", or "resins". While most are cured through evaporation, some are also radiation-cured. These products are used in a variety of woodworking, packaging and product assembly applications and are available in 5-gallon pails, drums, returnable totes, and bulk.
Hot Melt Adhesives
Dural manufactures a diverse line of hot melt adhesives that include rubber-based products for various pressure sensitive applications, ethylene vinyl acetate products for packaging (including case and carton sealing), and amorphous polyolefins (APOs) for product assembly applications. The hot melts are available in block, chip, slat, and pellet forms and are shipped in boxes, drums, or bulk containers.
Polyurethane (Reactive) Adhesives
Dural produces a full line of liquid and hot melt moisture cure polyurethanes for bookbinding, garage door and entry door panels, profile wrapping, custom decorative laminations and other applications. Dural is capable of custom formulating open time and cure speed to meet specific production requirements. All products are available in 5-gallon pails, and lined and unlined drums.
Dural manufactures a line of dry adhesives for customers who cook their own adhesives. Most of these products are for the tube winding, edge board, and paper laminating industries. Dural also performs custom compounding, blending, and sieving of dry products for third parties. Packaging of dry products is available in fifty-pound bags or drums.
