Nynas invests in adhesive expertise

To help improve its in-house competences and product development capabilities, Nynas has opened a new state-of-the-art Adhesive Lab. The new facility will enable Nynas to develop new products faster and work closer with customers to develop customised solutions.

“We see a lot of value in testing and developing products together with our customers, and the new Adhesive Lab allows us to take this to the next step,” says Marika Rangstedt, Manager, Technical Development and Market Support, Nynas. “It will enable us to better control testing and deliver results quicker than we have before.”

The Adhesive Lab is located at Nynas’ Technology Centre in Nynäshamn, Sweden, and has an array of testing instruments including:

  • Polymer laboratory mixer
  • Hot-melt coater/laminator
  • Tensile testing instrument
  • Rolling ball tack tester
  • UV chamber equipped with UVA and UVC light tubes
  • Digital hardness tester
  • Rheometer
  • Series of specimen cutters and die cutters


“Being able to develop customised products together is a common request from our customers, but until now we have not had the tools to push this forward,” says Dr. Peter Kaali, Technical Coordinator, Chemical Industry applications, Nynas. “Now we can perform extensive tests in real operating conditions.”

The Adhesive Lab will also enhance Nynas’ experience and knowledge of adhesive applications. “This will give us a much greater understanding of adhesives, so that we can grow into specialists in the field,” adds Dr. Kaali. “In designing the lab, we have also ensured we get the greatest value and versatility from our resources, which means that even though the lab is set for adhesives, it is not limited to that and we are capable of formulating and testing other polymer compounds as well, such as thermoplastic elastomers.”

In time, Nynas will further invest in expanding its polymer compounding and testing capacities, so that it can be an even stronger partner for its customers.
