For over 20 years, specialist adhesives and equipment from Chemique Adhesives have helped international office furniture manufacturer Ocee Design to produce innovative, attractive and competitive products, allowing the company to achieve and maintain an enviable rate of growth.
The principal products used by Ocee Design are from Chemique’s two component ProAqua range. This is an extremely versatile family of environmentally friendly, sprayable water-based adhesives that are superior in performance to their solvent-based counterparts.
Further benefits are that ProAqua adhesives need only a light application to achieve excellent results and the spray equipment used by Ocee Design, which was also supplied by Chemique Adhesives, allows for a very accurate spray pattern to be consistently achieved, with minimal overspray. These features make the adhesives particularly economical to use.
“We chose the ProAqua range for Ocee Design because of its proven and dependable performance in foam fabrication. It offers excellent results in the manufacture of high-quality office seating, upholstery and bedding. When we demonstrated these results to Ocee Designs, the company immediately ordered two spray systems, which are still in full working order today. We routinely service the equipment twice a year and, of course, we are always available to deal with any queries or requests that may arise,” explained Stuart Francis, managing director at Chemique Adhesives.
“We initially contacted Chemique Adhesives to ask for an alternative to our solvent-based adhesives and they offered us ProAqua, which is a great product. The relationship between our two companies has developed from there. At the moment we are expanding and will soon be adding new manufacturing and warehouse facilities, so we’ve ordered a new spray booth with a two-gun spray system from Chemique,” said Ray Hills, development manager at Ocee Design.
“The delivery deadline is really tight, but we know we can rely on Chemique Adhesives to achieve it. We’ve worked with the company for almost twenty years and have seen its products and services continue to improve and become more innovative. As our projects get increasingly ambitious, one thing we can always count on is the expertise and reliability we get from Chemique Adhesives.”
