SCIGRIP (Washington, UK) will focus on the demand for high-strength adhesives in the transportation sector with advanced bonding solutions formulated specifically for the automotive, heavy truck, bus and rail markets. Long-term fatigue and short-term crash resistance of vehicle components allied to efficient and effective assembly processes are essential considerations for all manufacturers in this sector. In response, SCIGRIP has developed a range of specialist methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesives that address these issues with high-temperature performance and good fatigue and impact resistance. 

SCIGRIP’s SG805 two-component bonding system reportedly allows customers greater flexibility in terms of substrate material selection and processing operations, including paint curing cycles. It requires no surface priming and with an open cure time of 5 minutes, offers a rapid bond on composites, metals and most thermoplastics.
