SCIGRIP has agreed a distribution partnership with Euroresins UK. Euroresins is a premier distributor of products to the composites resins industry and maintains a strong sales presence across Europe.
According to SCIGRIP, the arrangement is effective immediately and will offer UK customers rapid and easy access to the most advanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive technologies than ever before. SCIGRIP explains that its range of MMA products offer a combination of strength, toughness, ease of use and are already successfully in service in numerous challenging applications.
“The composites market demands prompt, reliable and efficient solutions. We view our partnership with Euroresins as a positive and progressive move toward the increased use of MMA technologies throughout UKmanufacturing,” remarks Tim Johnson, SCIGRIP’s European Sales and Marketing Manager.
SCIGRIP anticipates their advanced MMA technologies will continue to appeal to manufacturers seeking superior assembly performance and improved productivity levels within the transportation, marine, building and construction industries.
SCIGRIP and Euroresins will both be exhibiting on the 2-3 November 2016 at the Advanced Engineering Show 2016, Birmingham, UK.

Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
