SCIGRIP Enters Sign and Display Market

18 May 2012

SCIGRIP is launching a unique range of products formulated specifically for the Sign and Display market. 

According to SCIGRIP, these advanced formulations offer the perfect bonding solution for the diverse applications this sector demands. They say it is an unprecedented offering within the UK adhesives industry as no other supplier currently markets a complete range of Sign and Display products through one manufacturer. 

SCIGRIP explain that their Sign and Display adhesives produce consistently reliable results on a range of substrates including plastics, metals and composites. They say the range is well suited to skilled users such as sign and display fabricators, plastic fabricators, installers, shop fitters and joinery companies. The products can be purchased via a national network of experienced distributors who are trained in the products use and application. Available in easy to use cartridge systems and bulk packaging, all feature a choice of curing speed and viscosities to suit a wide range of applications.

SCIGRIP’S Sign and Display range is grouped into the following categories:

Adhesives for Plastics

  • PPX5 Ultimate Plastic Bonder: Tackles the issue of low energy surfaces such as Polypropylene (PP) and Polyethylene (PE) being notoriously difficult to work with as they repel rather than attract adhesion. PPX5 is specially developed to provide a tough resilient bond to surfaces with no special pre-treatment.
  • Product 42 is one of the highest performing US adhesives for bonding clear PMMA (acrylic). There are a number of other clear plastics adhesives in the range to choose from depending on the speed and viscosity requirement.

Adhesives for Metals 

  • SG300 and SG5000: Perfect for bonding metals to metals and metals to plastics therefore replacing or reducing the need for metal fasteners or welding.

Adhesives for Glass

  • UV106 is a thixotropic UV adhesive for bonding clear plastics to glass, and metals. This grade can be used without the need for expensive UV lamps (high intensity visible light cure).

Adhesives for Composites

  • GRP, Carbon Fibre, Alucabond and other composites materials are all catered for within the range from cure speeds of 2 minutes up to 2 hours.

“We are targeting the European market during the launch phase and have the opportunity to expand into Asia”, remarks Paul Nelson, SCIGRIP’s European Business Development Director. “It is an exciting time for the organisation as we continue to evolve and demonstrate our flexibilityto meet ever-changing assembly techniques”.
