Consistent reliable production results that yield quality finished products.
Use Cost Savings + Quality Products to give your company that competitive edge and stand out!
OVERVIEW OF THE BENEFITS OF ADHESIVES & SEALANTS:
New manufacturing components have challenged the role & application of adhesives & sealants.
Think about joining different new materials to construct a new or improved component.
Which joining technique will be best?
Can new joining techniques solve well-known joining problems such as:
Welding can alter the properties of the material within the hat affected area.
Riveting can allow force transfer points.
Drilling holes can damage & weaken the material.
The answer is YES, in most cases!
Bonding technology currently plays a critical role in the manufacturing sector efficiencies & growth.
The Top Four Reasons to consider updating your bonding process:
Material - Bonding technology can bond any desired combination of materials with each other to create long lasting bonds.
Processing - Bonding technology in production processes allows the material properties of the substrates to remain intact.
Joining - New construction methods can be explored as the long lasting bonds & stable strength of the substrates can handle more stress.
Design - Bonding technology can introduce customized enhancements to the component during the actual joining process.
Times Savings = Cost Savings!
Adhesive & Sealant Types & Common Uses
Adhesive sealers and sealants provides a strong barrier to protect surfaces from substances and liquids.
Some popular adhesive sealants include:
Scotchweld 4693, a high performance adhesive that forms strong bonds on most plastics, polypropylene, polyethylene and polyolefin blends. It bonds well to other plastics such as ABS, PMMA & nylons, polyesters, rigid polystyrene & resists weathering, water & cleaning products.
Adhesive Sealants 550 / 730 / 760. 3M 550 Polyurethane comes in grey, white or black, 730 Low VOC comes in clear and 760 Low VOC comes in white. These adhesive sealante are formulated to have a wide variety of hardness, open times & performance parameters to meet many applications requirements.
5200 Marine grade Adhesive Sealant is a fast-curing marine polyurethane adhesive sealant which becomes tack-free in one hour & fully cures in approx. 24 hours.
