SciGrip Smarter Adhesive Solutions (Durham, NC, US) introduced at JEC Europe 2015 its new SG800 range of methyl methacrylate (MMA) bonding systems that are specially formulated and developed for automotive, agricultural vehicles, rail and heavy truck applications. SG800 adhesives, with customizable room-temperature cure, reportedly have 85-90% of the strength of epoxy, but with much higher elongation and toughness, and they can withstand working temperatures up to 120°C. Plus, they produce very low bondline read-through, for better part aesthetics. SG800 products work with unprimed metals, sheet molding compound (SMC) and dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) materials.
