Mercer ... 'productivity through innovation.' (10th Annual Show in Print of the International Nonwovens Industry ) (Brief Article)

With an understanding of manufacturing in today's global environment and through the provision of development services offering application solutions, Mercer Corporation, Hendersonville, TN, is expanding the productivity of nonwoven converters worldwide.

Recently doubling its laboratory capabilities and size establishes Mercer as "The Single Source" hot melt testing facility. Spiral spray, fine-line, slot-die extrusion, screen printing and rotogravure pattern printing technologies can all be demonstrated.

New products like SEGA-MELT, COMPU-VISION and CONVERT-A-DRUM are testimony to the diversity of ongoing enhancements for an industry where precision adhesive application is crucial to product integrity and profitability.

Innovation is as evident today as it was 25 years ago when Mercer patented the |NO-CHAR' multiple grid, "melt-on-demand" system that melts the adhesive in up to five stages. This process isolates high temperature adhesive from oxygen, eliminating char.

In 1991, a readership survey rated Mercer #1 in overall service. This private, family-owned business believes that service is a reflection of much more: quality, value and innovation.
