Drytac Europe appoints Phil Webster as Technical Sales Manager for custom coating projects

Press release from the issuing company

Bristol, UK - Drytac Europe, an international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label and industrial markets, has announced the appointment of Phil Webster to the role of Technical Sales Manager.  In this new role, Phil is charged with the development and management of all of Drytac Europe’s custom coating projects. 

Drytac offers a comprehensive array of adhesive solutions including aggressive solvent-based solutions, heat re-activated adhesives, water-based dispersions and emulsions, and hotmelt coatings.  Working closely with key accounts, Phil will be instrumental in delivering bespoke permanent or removable adhesive materials for a wide variety of applications.

Phil has more than 20 years’ experience in the pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) industry.  He has previously worked for Henkel and spent many years at Bostik managing European sales for the tape and label market. Phil also ran his own business, Tecnoincollaggi UK Ltd, for 5 years which involved the distribution of hotmelt coating equipment.

On the new appointment, Hayden Kelley, Managing Director for Drytac Europe, comments: “We’re delighted that Phil has chosen to join our team; he has in-depth knowledge of the PSA industry and his technical competence and attention to detail will ensure our bespoke coating projects will run more smoothly than ever before.  These are exciting times for Drytac and Phil’s appointment is critical in boosting our custom coating business and developing products which allow the company to enter new markets.

“Typical applications might include graphics films and adhesives, window films, anti-scratch coatings, technical tapes and speciality labels - the list of possible applications is endless!  There’s a common misconception that volumes for custom coating have to be huge.  However this is not the case as we can provide bespoke coating runs from 5,000 to 500,000 feet for potential customers.”
