SCIGRIP is launching an enhanced product for bonding dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) composites at JEC Europe, Porte de Versaille in Paris, France, next week.
As a result of their developmental work with SG600, a methyl methacrylate (MMA) structural adhesive, SCIGRIP says it has produced an advanced product that is suitable for bonding many difficult substrates including grades of DCPD.
Many grades of DCPD adhered successfully with SG600 without time consuming preparation techniques such as flame treatment. SG600 is cold curing to produce tough and fatigue resistant bonds and also features ratio adjustable cure times and rheology compatible with robotic application. SG600 has also performed well in trials bonding ABS, PVC and SMC as well as traditional PE, VE or epoxy composites.
SCIGRIP will additionally be featuring their 10:1 MMA range, now in full EU and USA production. These include SG230HV, the high gap fill low exotherm MMA for large composite component assembly, and SG300, popular in many transport sectors for tough bonding of composites and metals without primer.
“We are listening to our customers: they need to eliminate or reduce costs in their preparation, application, and cure or post-cure processes. They are seeking automated, efficient and reliable bonds with impact resistance and good fatigue performance without heat curing”, says Peter George, Sales and Marketing Director of SCIGRIP Europe. “Our customers continue to upgrade the substrates they wish to work with and this provides us with an opportunity to develop and demonstrate the most effective adhesives solutions to suit.”
SCIGRIP can be found at booth D43.
Scigrip has expanded its agreement with Biesterfeld Spezialchemie to include France and the French territories in Northern Africa, with immediate effect.
Following its strategy to address composites end-use industries specifically, JEC Group is organising The Future of Composites in Transportation, a two-day event taking place on 27-28 June in Chicago.
Dilutec has launched the Colorgel FR LE gel-coat, which complies with the UL 94 (V-0) plastics flammability standard and is characterised by the low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
