SCIGRIP will be launching SG6000, a new two component methyl methacrylate adhesive (MMA) at Composites Europe.
SCIGRIP explains that this advanced bonding system is designed to adhere to DCPD and SMC composite substrates and requires minimal surface preparation prior to application. The combination of reduced process requirements and no read through on bonded parts makes SG6000 ideal for a variety of assembly operations in the transportation, agricultural and construction vehicle markets. Key applications include the bonding of hood stiffener beams and internal fixture component bonding.
SCIGrip adds that an extensive research project conducted by them and one of Europe’s largest producers of DCPD has proven the adhesive's outstanding performance. SG6000 successfully met some very specific production criteria, and claims to demonstrate excellent fatigue, impact and shock load behaviour and superior peel resistance.
SG6000 is available in 400ml cartridges and 19 and 189 litre containers that can be applied with specialist dispensing equipment. Thanks to SCIGRIP’s UK and US manufacturing operations, customers can expect their products to be delivered rapidly and efficiently wherever their location.
SCIGrip will be exhibiting in Hall 5, Stand D44.
The MIA is delighted to support ‘Composites in Motorsport’, a 2-day conference organised by NetComposites, which will look at the innovative use of composites within our industry and future applications of composite solutions within motorsport.
Shape provides accurate CNC machined patterns and Rohacell foams to support the manufacture of the carbon composite structures used on their 2019 car that is due to compete at Silverstone on 19 July 2019.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
