At Akron Ascent Innovations (AAI), we are interested in the future of adhesives.  We were founded in 2012 with the mission of developing a revolutionary dry adhesive that we have affectionately named A’Qat™ (pronounced “A Cat”).  This material belongs to a new class of super-adhesives called "dry adhesives" that are inspired by nature's greatest crawler, the gecko.  The advantage of dry adhesives is that they can be designed to be extremely strong in one direction (a thumbnail size piece of A’Qat™ can hold over 100 pounds), but can still be easily removed, repositioned, and reused, all without damaging your surface.
