Richard Weiner, Legal News Reporter for The Akron Legal News, published an article describing Akron Ascent Innovations’ recent launch of ShearGrip and Pinless brand products. The article is a follow-up to an prior report on AAI’s nascent development of dry adhesive technology and provides a particular focus on the consumer-oriented “Pinless Parenting” blog introduced to demonstrate different uses of Pinless products.
From the article:
“Kevin White looks at the photo on his phone. It is of the granddaughter of a visitor. She is perched on a horse, and the visitor has just sent the photo to White’s phone. White, the CEO and founder of Akron Ascent Innovations, hits the ‘print” button and out of his office printer comes the photo.

AAI is a start-up company based in Akron, OH that has developed a revolutionary new type of ultra-low tack, removable adhesives material made from nanofibers. This new class of materials is able to achieve a strong, but easily removable, bond between surfaces through nanoscale interactions. This approach to adhesion was inspired by nature and is widely used in the animal kingdom, including beetles and geckos. AAI’s platform approach to dry adhesion can be used for a range of applications, ranging from temporary signage, wall hanging hooks, and picture frame tabs, to automotive assembly, food packaging, and smart clothing.
