With a spirit of innovation that dates back to our inception, Mactac is a leading supplier of pressure-sensitive adhesives.
Headquartered in Stow, Ohio, Mactac was founded as Morgan Adhesives Co. in 1959 by the late entrepreneur and multimillionaire Burton (Burt) Morgan. Along with financial backing from Bemis Co. and a business model that focused on providing high quality products, innovative solutions and superior customer service, Mactac flourished. For nearly 60 years, we’ve been manufacturing and distributing pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) materials that are used in label printing, graphic design, packaging, retail display, fleet graphics, automotive assembly, medical device assembly, and more. Today, Mactac employs 525 people and has operations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Mactac was purchased by LINTEC in 2016. LINTEC is a leading company in the fields of adhesive products and specialty papers.
Mactac PSAs are used in a wide range of markets and industries and our business is structured accordingly. We are a vertically integrated organization comprised of five business units – each specially designed to meet the unique needs of our customers.
Roll Label Products are where our roots were first planted. Available in roll-to-roll form, we offer a wide array of PSA-coated papers and films in various weights and thicknesses, textures, colors and opacity levels and conformability/rigidity ranges. Our Roll Label solutions can be found in hundreds of industries and applications, such as durable goods labeling, product identification, barcoding and instruction labeling, security and safety labeling, USPS self-adhesive postage stamps, health and beauty products, food and beverage labeling, and more.
Our Industrial Tapes also date back to our founding days and include an endless list of custom-engineered PSA tapes for bonding, mounting and fastening applications. An alternative to mechanical fasteners, screws and traditional assembly components, Mactac PSAs often meet or exceed the performance capabilities of other bonding methods. They successfully bond foams, plastics and metal parts to create lasting permanent bonds or simply act as assembly aids. Our tapes are constructed for everything from high-performance long-term applications to reliable, low-cost short-term applications.
For nearly 50 years, Mactac has been at the forefront of PSA materials development for wide-format digital printing, mounting, laminating, screen-printing and cut-vinyl needs. In fact, we pioneered the overlaminate and mounting films industry in the 1970’s, inventing the cold-mounting technology that sparked large-format image protection development. And, our dedication to innovation continues today. Our premium pressure-sensitive Graphic Products are known to deliver superior image quality, lasting durability, and much more. Our innovative solutions transform walls, windows, floors, vehicles and other unique spaces, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor signage, fleet and vehicle wraps, tradeshow displays, retail signage, environmental graphics, and other eye-catching applications.
For those in the pressure-sensitive sheets business, Mactac is a household name. Our legacy Starliner® brand has been the industry frontrunner for years. Introduced in 1982, this pressure-sensitive sheet stock was the first of its kind – allowing printers to run PSA sheets through print technology as quickly and cleanly as fine paper. Still revolutionizing sheet-fed printing today, Mactac Sheets Products are ideal for applications such as promotional media, point-of-purchase displays, package/product identification, and variable information printing on address, routing and shipping labels. Our solutions are available to sheet-fed commercial printers through our comprehensive network of paper merchants.
From direct skin contact to medical device assembly applications, Mactac has been a trusted source of medical-grade PSA systems for almost 30 years. Our Medical Adhesive Products are custom-engineered to fit a variety of medical applications, including wound care, surgical drapes, transdermal drug delivery, TENS electrodes, continuous monitoring devices, medical device assembly, and more. Each Mactac medical solution – including the precise combination of adhesive, facestock and release liner – is specially designed for our customers’ specific needs.
We, LINTEC, offer a wide variety of products including seals, labels, outdoor signs, interior materials, and other products in the fields of semiconductors and LCDs with our unique adhesive technology.
