Chemicals, coatings, and adhesives are not likely to be items that occupy our minds on a regular basis. Although painted in many different lights, it doesn't appear that anyone would want to live in a world without chemicals, coatings, or adhesives. Chemicals account for one of the United States leading export sectors, coatings make our world a colorful place, and adhesives keep a large portion of our things together. In part 3 of our Industrial Mixers In Real Life series, we invite you to explore some of the companies that utilize our industrial mixing equipment and MXD Process equipment to make and or develop chemicals, coatings, and adhesives.
This Cincinnati, Ohio-based company has been helping people solve problems that require "gorilla tough" glue. Their product has become more of a verb than a brand.

Gorilla Glue utilizes the Mixer Direct Economy Clamp Mount Mixer.

Customers can rent a Rug Doctor in more than 20+ countries. More recently, customers can now purchase one of their products in the retail market.
