MMA structural adhesive

Scigrip Smarter Adhesive Solutions highlighted at JEC Europe 2013 its SG600 enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) structural adhesive.

Scigrip Smarter Adhesive Solutions (Durham, N.C.), which combines the structural adhesive brands Weld-On, Holdtite and Macroplexx, highlighted at JEC Europe 2013 its SG600 enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) structural adhesive. Suitable for bonding difficult substrates, including dicyclopentodiene (DCPD), without time-consuming preparation, SG600 is cold curing, with adjustable cure time and rheology that is compatible with robotic applications, and it reportedly produces tough, fatigue-resistant bonds thanks to the product’s elongation. Company president John Reeves told CT that he sees growth for the company in composites, particularly in automotive and transportation sectors, where adhesives play a role in lightweighting.
