SCIGRIP has been awarded the ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) certification for its SG230 HV (high viscosity) range of structural products.
SCIGRIP explains the company submitted a comprehensive range of data around SG230 HV therefore allowing ABS to determine if the product met their rigorous specification criteria. Based on a satisfactory review of the physical and mechanical test results, SG230 HV was awarded a Product Design Assessment Certificate (PDA).
According to SCIGRIP, the PDA certification was followed by a site survey of the company’s US manufacturing facility in Durham, North Carolina, conducted to ascertain if the product would be consistently produced in accordance with the specification. This resulted in additional accreditations including the issuance of a Manufacturing Assessment Certificate and Type Approval of the product.
Mark Rogan, European Sales and Marketing Manager, SCIGRIP commented “This is another significant step towards SCIGRIP extending its relationship with the larger sized boatbuilding operations both in Europe and the US. We are delighted to offer such powerful and reliable bonding solutions that have received recognition from such a respected industry standard.”
