Scigrip will be launching an enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive, SG805, with increased temperature resistance at Composites Europe 2014.

According to Scigrip the adhesive is primarily formulated for the bonding of components in the automotive, transportation and heavy truck sectors. SG805 allows customers greater flexibility of material selection and processing operations including paint curing cycles.

Mark Rogan, Scigrip’s European Sales and Marketing Manager, comments “It 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. 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, the company explains visitors to Composites Europe 2014 will have an opportunity to view the ScigripSolar Boat that recently achieved first place in the Dong Energy Solar Challenge.  Thesuper light, high tech composite structure weighs only 137kg and has been assembled with a variety of Scigripproducts.
