Adhesive with reduced bondline read-through

Adhesives specialist SCIGRIP launched an enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive.

Adhesives specialist SCIGRIP (Washington, U.K.) launched an enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive. The new MMA product line provides customers the opportunity to select from a greater number of materials and permits bonding of thinner substrates without unsightly read-through lines and distortions on the part’s outer skin. It reportedly will appeal to manufacturers of composite structures in the marine and transport markets who are looking to improve the aesthetics of their components while optimizing design, production speeds and part costs. This adhesive reportedly demonstrates low heat distortion and low chemical shrinkage with fast but controllable cure speeds. SCIGRIP also introduced a range of specialized engineering adhesives.
