Holdtite Appoint John Burn as UK Distribution Partner

13 August 2010

John Burn have been appointed by Holdtite to distribute the Macroplexx ranges of structural adhesives in the UK.

The addition to the John Burn range of products is in line with the company's strategy to develop a range of products for the composite and rapid prototyping markets.

The 5000 series contains the latest generation of structural Methacrylate adhesives, combining 1:1, 10:1 and bulk delivery systems. Unlike many of the older Methacrylate systems that adopt single co-polymer chemistry, this range shares the technique of a five co-polymer process. According to John Burn, this process can deliver an even higher level of tensile, impact, and shear strength than the conventional technology, in both composite and metal applications.

The 3000 series of products provides an established and complete portfolio of acrylic bonding technology. John Burn say that this chemistry allows the high shear strength and temperature resistance of conventional acrylics to be combined with the increased peel and impact strength offered by a rubber-toughened adhesive. Incorporated within the technology are a number of unique non-flammable systems. In addition, the advanced cure mechanisms allow a number of assembly methods to be applied, providing the critical versatility necessary for automated OEM manufacture
