H.B. Fuller Company ... serving the global nonwoven-hygienic industry.

We are H.B. Fuller Company, a worldwide manufacturer and marketer of specialty chemicals serving industry since 1887. Employing more than 5,600 people and with manufacturing operations in 31 countries, our 105-year-old company today serves customers in nearly 100 countries. For the nonwoven-hygienic market, we transform leading-edge research and development into technologically innovative adhesives manufactured to stringent specifications.


Around the world, we have proven expertise in developing adhesives that are designed to bond a wide range of nonwoven fabrics, back sheets and elastics used in diapers, feminine hygiene products, adult incontinent garments and medical disposable products.

To promote the effective transfer of the newest technologies within our company, we have developed an internal, global nonwoven team headed by a global nonwoven industry manager and supported by a dedicated global nonwoven technical manager. Team members communicate continuously and meet regularly to promote consistent quality, performance and delivery of products, worldwide.


Our product design process typically begins with you--our customer--by listening to your needs, knowing your industry and monitoring the trends that are shaping your marketplace. Because of our focus by industry, we are able to learn about the markets we serve in great detail. We can then translate that knowledge into products that will help you compete--products like... * ZEROPACK [TM] hot melt

adhesives, where low-application-temperature

hot melts and their

package are combined into one

to reduce packaging waste; * A high-performance hot melt

wetness indicator for adult

incontinence products that offers

excellent humidity resistance

and a dramatic color change; * Patented, pressure-sensitive

positioning adhesives for

feminine hygiene products that are

considered an industry leader

because of their high tack and

clean release; * Patented, multi-purpose hot

melt adhesives that are

excellent performers when used for

elastic attachment and diaper


In addition, we have a patented spray process for attaching multi-strand elastic in diapers that provides superior creep resistance.

Our expertise also extends to equipment and application technology. Our ongoing co-supplier program with leading manufacturers provides us with a better understanding of your machinery, materials, and marketplace and the impact each has on your finished products. Active involvement in your industry's organizations further enhances our awareness.

At our Willow Lake Research and Development Center located near St. Paul, MN, we're continually researching new raw materials and developing new adhesive formulations that can improve your product's well as your profit potential.
