Footwear and Leather

We are the home of the world-famous “Chelsea Dubbin”, a founding product in our portfolio since our establishment in 1890. Caswell Adhesives have been supplying the UK footwear industry with quality glues and adhesives. As market leaders in the field, we pride ourselves in supplying bespoke adhesives while complying with strict quality guidelines in compliance with our ISO 9001 accreditation.

Our footwear range of water-based, solvent-based and hot melt adhesives has been specially developed for use in closing rooms, making rooms, shoe rooms and during the manufacture of a variety of other leather goods such as handbags, belts and gloves.

We produce adhesives for use across the entire shoe-making process including lasting, sole-laying, sole-attaching and direct vulcanising. Suitable for use with modern lasting machinery, wetted leather and for the manufacture of rubber-soled safety footwear, we can supply the exact custom adhesive for our clients.

We are continuously developing our product range and work in collaboration with UK footwear trade organisations, such as SATRA to ensure we are meeting the requirements of this demanding industry.

With over 100 years’ experience in delivering the footwear industry with quality bonding adhesives, we have built up a vast library of knowledge, enabling us to develop bespoke industrial adhesives for any application. Recent developments in the industry have seen an increased demand for water-based adhesives, the fastest-growing and most complex arena at Caswell. Our water-based adhesives are specifically formulated to provide environmental benefits over solvent-based alternatives while ensuring a strong, reliable adhesion.
