In October 2019, Action Adhesives were delighted to announce an exclusive distribution deal. This time, it was for a range of Chemical Anchor resins from BIT. Chemical Anchors can be found widely in the construction industry. They can be known as liquid metal, anchor resin, chemical fastners and mortar resins. The non-expanding nature of a chemically held rod drastically reduces the potential of the surrounding concrete cracking.

Earlier in March 2019, Action Adhesives supported a customer who was trying to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals and dangerous goods on the factory floor. The customer was using large quantities of different threadlocker products. These were harmful to the environment and were of potential danger to the operators on the assembly line. We introduced the business to the next generation “White Label Threadlocker”. White Label means that there are no hazard symbols required on the packaging. The threadlocker is non-hazardous to users and the environment. In recent years we have seen a move away from standard threadlockers.
Over the last 2 years, White Label threadlocker pricing has come in line with standard threadlocker products. This has resulted in the removal of a hazard from the working environment, while saving you money.
In 2019, Action Adhesives were contacted by a multinational medical device manufacturer. They were having issues with an adhesive product and needed expert advice. Upon contacting Action Adhesives, our team took their 22 years of experience in the Adhesives market and applied it to the customers challenges. After much liaising, testing and quality checking, our team came up with a workable solution.
This solution has gone through the rigorous medical technology testing procedure. From this testing we have successfully progressed with the finished product passing all the required tests.
For the medical environment, we often recommend the use of UV cure adhesives. These adhesives are environmentally friendly, single part adhesives that cure under UV light.
