Adhesives specialist SCIGRIP (Washington, U.K.) is launching at JEC Europe an enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive that is said to significantly reduce bond line read-through (BLRT) in composite components. The new product allows customers a greater selection of materials to work with and permits thinner substrates to be bonded without unsightly read-through lines and distortions on the outer skin of the part. It reportedly will appeal to manufacturers of composite structures in the marine and transport markets looking to improve the aesthetics of their components while optimizing design, production speeds and costs. This new MMA adhesive reportedly demonstrates low heat distortion, low chemical shrinkage and fast controllable cure speeds. SCIGRIP will also introduce at the show a specialist range of engineering adhesives.
