Adhesive Manufacturer helps reduce total costs  

Adhesive Manufacturer, Anagha ASF, Ensures lowest total adhesive cost. Does user require lowest cost of adhesive OR lowest application cost. 

Total Application cost = Cost of adhesive used per application + Labour cost in applying the adhesive + savings due to lesser warranty claims, failure costs. 

 Anagha ASF, an adhesive manufacturer , ensures to keep the TCO lowest. We will discuss in details about this concept and how we ensure lowest TOTAL COST.

The total cost of ownership (TCO) is a management accounting concept that derives an asset’s total cost during its useful life. It includes the purchase price, maintenance and operational cost that will incur during the asset’s lifespan.

  • Total cost of ownership (TCO) refers to the lifetime cost of buying an adhesive/sealant. In simple terms, we can say that it is the total monetary cost attributed to an asset spanning from the purchase planning to its disposal. 
  • TCO analysis helps to disclose all direct, indirect as well as any hidden costs associated with a purchase. Therefore, it’s helpful to examine whether a cost-effective product is as economical as you think. 
  • The formula to calculate the TCO is to add the initial purchase value to direct, indirect and other hidden costs. The value so arrived is then subtracted from a projected resale/ residual value at the end of the asset’s lifespan.
  • These costs may change depending on what you’re buying and what’s your purpose of the purchase. Also, hidden cost varies with the asset type.


The next time you are selecting new equipment, try using the total cost of ownership (TCO) formula:

The initial cost is the number that appears on the price tag. As previously stated, this is less than 10 percent of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).


Operation is the cost to install the pump, test the pump, train employees to run the pump, and the cost of energy to operate the pump. If the pump is complicated to use, the cost of training will increase.


Maintenance includes the cost of regular repairs such as cleaning, inspecting, lubricating, and adjusting the pump to make sure it is in optimal condition. This also includes reactive maintenance when the equipment breaks down unexpectedly.


While you could include downtime along with the cost of maintenance, it is often so large that it warrants its own category. Downtime involves the labor costs of employees whose work is delayed, indirect labor costs from supervisors who address the issue, lost production, and lost customers from inability to meet time expectations. 


Two different pumps will likely have different levels of output, produce different qualities, and have different environmental implications.


The remaining value has to do with the pump’s longevity. How much will the pump be worth in 5 or 10 years? It can be a big difference.

This formula can sound a little overwhelming, but let’s start simple.

I + M – R = TCO

Case Study – Lowest total application cost 


Costing of Cement Grouting method

Considering the length of the hole to be 500 mm, with a diameter of up to 50 mm

  • 1 bag of 25 kgs (can fill up to 75 holes) = INR 450/-, material cost = Rs 6 per hole
  • Labor cost: 2 labourers will grout 50 holes per day. Let us assume they are paid INR 750/- each. Labour cost per hole= Rs. 30.

  • Cement grouting cost per tie rod hole= Rs 36
  •  This process is tedious, labor-intensive and for high rise towers inaccessible/unsafe for  manual grouting

PU foam Spray costing:

Material Cost:

  • One 750 ml foam can, filled  (can fill  up to 66 holes of 20 mm diameter * 450 mm length), Approx Cost of one 750 ml can =450 + GST.
  • Per hole material cost = PU foam + Pu cleaner + Pu Gun = 6.8+.5+.5 = Rs 7.8

Labor Cost: One worker can fill approx 250  holes in a day. Per hole labor cost = Rs. 4 (Rs. 1000 per day labor cost)

  • Total cost =Rs. 11.8 per hole

Total Application cost

Factors to be considered:

  1. cost of adhesive per unit ( ml/gms)
  2. quantity of adhesive per application
  3. labour cost for application
  4.  Rework cost 
  5. Warranty cost
  6. cost of failure 

Total Application cost= adhesive cost per application+ labour cost + rework cost+ warranty cost + cost of failure 

How to reduce total cost

It is imperative that an adhesive manufacturer provides inputs about reducing adhesive consumption. Few points are enumerated below:

  • reduce cost per ml / gms of adhesive
  • reduce adhesive usage per application- use adhesive dispensing systems
  • reduce application time, labour cost- automatic adhesive application
  • reduce rework, warranty, cost of failure – use right adhesive, accurate application – training users.
