An adhesive is a substance that holds at least two surfaces together. Sealant, on the other hand, refers to a material that is attached to at least two surfaces for filling the gap between them and providing a barrier or protective coating. Adhesives and sealants have conventionally been made of natural substances, such as beeswax, tar and tree sap. However, with the advancements in materials and processes, next-generation adhesives and sealants have been introduced in the market, which are more durable, reliable and waterproof.
Adhesives and sealants are used in a wide variety of industries ranging from food, construction, packaging, furniture to the automotive, appliance, textile and aircraft. They are also employed in the healthcare sector, having broad applications in the medical, dentistry and pharmaceutical fields. Manufacturers are currently focusing on producing high-quality adhesives using modern technologies, such as nanotechnology. They are also investing significantly in research and development (R&D) while undertaking several initiatives to manufacture sustainable products. For instance, green or bio-based adhesives have been recently launched in the market by utilizing high Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are eco-friendly in nature.
