Adhesive Engineers

Intercol is an adhesive factory with extensive expertise both in its laboratories and in the field. In addition to being able to use the right raw materials and additives optimally and creatively, we understand the machine parameters and the technical side of both the machine and the adhesives.

Our "sales engineers" are therefore often technically trained and have practical experience with machines from various industries.

By thoroughly understanding the machine properties and comparing the chemical possibilities, we want to achieve the most optimal result for our customers' production environments.
