Having a sticky site is a good thing in today's web world...but how about a site that's sticky? Adhesivesmart.com is just that, an industrial adhesives database that helps engineers find just the sticky solution they need. The glue to this siteóthe databaseólists thousands of products from more than 50 suppliers. Users can search via an adhesives selector or by keyword. Even better, if you don't know what keyword to use, up pops a cohesive glossary. The selector guide is plastered with choices: type of application, substrates, approvals, and special purpose. Adhere to the specifications that are important to you. The selector then brings together a list of adhesives that won't gum up your project.
But the site offers other adherent "stuff," including User Resources such as raw material suppliers, testing facilities, services and consultants, a links library, and information for manufacturers. Finally, the user interface is clean, easy to navigate, and not at all tacky! Sorry, we just couldn't resist sticking in this pun!
