Duraco Specialty Materials, a manufacturer of materials including tapes and labels, coated films and release liners and a portfolio company of OpenGate Capital, has purchased Strata-Tac Inc., a manufacturer of pressure-sensitive self-adhesive products and top coated films.

Strata-Tac, headquartered in St. Charles, Ill., offers a range of pressure-sensitive services to label convertors and manufacturers in applications including medical/pharmaceutical labeling, brand protection and durable labeling. The deal works to continue Duraco Specialty Material’s focus on delivering services across end markets. The addition of Strata-Tac’s experience in water-based chemistries complements Duraco’s portfolio of services, giving customers access to a range of pressure sensitive adhesives for labels and tapes, facestocks and coated materials.

“The combination of Strata-Tac’s operational capabilities, along with Duraco’s strong operating expertise and its seasoned management team will drive continued commercial growth into new markets,” says Andrew Nikou, OpenGate Capital’s founder and CEO.
