SCIGRIP will be launching an enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive, SG 805, with increased temperature resistance at Composites Engineering 2014. SCIGRIP will also be introducing two newly appointed UK distributors at the show; PSG and WI Polymers.
According to SCIGRIP SG 805 was primarily formulated for the bonding of components in the automotive, transportation and heavy truck sectors, allowing customers greater flexibility of material selection and processing operations including paint curing cycles. It claims SG 805 will appeal to manufacturers of composite structures who are seeking to improve the aesthetics of their components whilst optimising part design, production speeds and ultimately reducing costs.
The company states this development follows on from SCIGRIP’s recent product offerings that highlighted extended working times, thick bond lines, Fire Smoke and Toxicity (FST) certification and low print through capabilities.
In addition, SCIGRIP states visitors to the event will have the opportunity to be introduced to SCIGRIP’s two newly appointed UK distributors. Firstly, PSG , a supplier of adhesives, coatings and chemicals based in Surrey, England and secondly, WI Polymers, the manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and speciality functional coatings located in Ireland.
Mark Rogan, SCIGRIP’s European Sales and Marketing Manager commented “ We have provided our new UK distributors with full technical training allowing them to learn more about SCIGRIP’s complete portfolio of products. We look forward to working together to supply our adhesives across a broad range of composite, industrial and transport applications”.
SCIGRIP will also be showcasing its range of tough MMA structural adhesives developed specifically for the bonding of carbon and glass composites to metals and engineered plastics.
Scigrip will be exhibiting at stand D126 at the show.
