As automotive, heavy truck and agricultural vehicle manufacturers embrace the use of DCPD in areas such as exterior body panels, SCIGRIP has responded with a range of assembly adhesive formulations for these hard to bond specialty plastics. A key product for the company is SG300, a two-component, 10:1 mix ratio, methacrylate structural adhesive that is suited to bonding composites, metals and thermoplastic substrates.

Advanced Bonding Solutions for Challenging Applications

The SG300 series is an advanced formula that meets the challenging demands of the transportation industry, including minimum surface preparation, primerless metal bonding and low read through. Manny Tesfaye, SCIGRIP’s Director of Global Technical Services, will be presenting at the show on Thursday 1st December. The paper is titled ‘Advanced Bonding Solutions for Land Transportation Markets’ and will address the critical performance evaluation processes required to qualify adhesive systems for assembling materials typically found in bus, truck and rail applications.
