AAI is pioneering a new way to attach that takes the mess, damage, and hassle out of adhesives.

Akron Ascent Innovations (AAI) was founded to commercialize a new approach to attach objects to various surfaces. For lack of a better word, we call it a "dry adhesive," but it's not like any adhesive you've ever used. It isn't sticky to the touch, but it can secure sheets, films, pictures, cards, packages, photos, frames, and even high capacity hooks to walls and other surfaces without damage. Even better, it can be repositioned and often reused, depending on the application, which gives a world of new opportunities not possible with conventional adhesives.


Our Mission

To use our technical knowledge to provide easy to use and innovative adhesive solutions that exceed customer expectations. 

“We want to make materials that work so well they seem like magic and want to make the world a better place for it.”
— Barry Rosenbaum, CEO & co-founder of AAI
