Chapter 1 gives background information related to Nashua's conversion efforts, including market profile, process description, and a general description of its conversion efforts. Chapter 2 identifies Nashua's motivations for converting its solvent-based operations to waterbased adhesives. Chapter 3 briefly describes the marketing factors that affected the process conversion. Chapter 4 identifies the various raw material issues, including costs, involved in the process conversion. Chapter 5 details the process equipment issues of the conversion, including specific equipment impacts, costs, vendor selection, and maintenance.
