Lawter has a long history, most recently as a part of Momentive Specialty Chemicals, referred to as Ink and Adhesive Resins (IAR). On February 1, 2011, we became Lawter, part of Harima Chemicals, Inc., a company strong in pine chemicals and built on products developed using pine chemical resources. Today, Lawter serves the graphic arts, adhesives, specialty coatings, aroma chemicals and the synthetic rubber industries.
The new Lawter, in name only, has a long history and is a result of many highly successful businesses coming together over more than 60 years. Today, we are a global business operating in over 20 countries with 11 manufacturing and technology centers.
Our strength is built on formulating technology, strategic raw material sourcing and our global network of manufacturing capabilities.
