STARTING A NATURAL RUBBER ADHESIVES BUSINESS IN UGANDA

Introduction

The demand for Adhesives is very high in the Paper products industry, Schools, Offices and Craft projects. This profile envisages the establishment of a plant that will manufacture Adhesives from Natural Rubber based on the capacity of 500 liters per day. An adhesive, or glue, is a mixture in a liquid or semi-liquid state that adheres or bonds items together.

The venture is estimated o yield an annual revenue of US$780,000, with net profit margin 19% and payback period of 2 months.

Production Process:

Adhesives cure (harden) by evaporating a solvent (Most adhesives cure at room temperature) or by exposing them to an elevated temperature. The rubber compositions are packed together by molding them into thin coatings between a release film and a porous substrate to allow curing. The resultant product has highly desirable bonding and release.
