Airtech Advanced Materials Group’s (Huntington Beach, Calif., U.S.) Airtac 2 Improved is a mist spray rubber adhesive designed for temporary bonds. According to Airtech, it can be used on materials needing extra tack for placement on vertical or difficult surface areas, and is ideally suited for applications such as temporary placement of details or pattern fabrication.
Benefits are said to include excellent tack in order to hold dry materials for faster vacuum bagging, accurate material placement for infusion setups and low toxicity for safer application.
The company says that Airtac 2 Improved meets many restrictions that U.S. states have in place for for low volatile organic compound (VOC) levels in aerosol products. Currently, this product is only available in the U.S., Mexico and China.
