ITW Plexus at Bondexpo

Published on 2009-09-17. Author : SpecialChem

ITW Plexus, will be exhibiting at Bondexpo in Stuttgart and this year will be highlighting the benefits and savings that major transportation, automotive and engineered construction manufacturers are achieving by using the high performance range of methacrylate adhesives to bond many dissimilar materials.

These adhesives are facilitating faster and easier assembly and produce durable high-strength bonds to virtually all resins and gel coats, as well as most thermoplastics and metals. They are used to bond car spoilers, wind turbine blades, train interiors, kitchen worktops, signs and much more.

Unlike marine putties, Plexus® Adhesives chemically fuse GRP and composites. They produce bonds so strong that the substrates will delaminate before the bond fails.Because they eliminate surface preparation and cure rapidly at room temperature, Plexus® Adhesives dramatically simplify and shorten assembly times, taking cost out of the finished product.

What's more, the Plexus MMA adhesives are being used to improve production efficiency, reduce component weight and increase durability. As an example in bonding car spoilers, coat weight is low and cycle times are short, resulting in increased production speed and reduced cost. In addition, the adhesives exhibit high performance which improves quality and gives excellent long term bond performance.

Staff from Plexus Europe headed by Frank Senden, will be available throughout the show to elaborate on the benefits and savings that their adhesive systems can offer end users. They will be based in Hall 7 on stand 7412-1 which will be shared with German distributor Ulbrich.
