SCIGRIP attributes this latest success to the growing popularity of their industry approved methacrylate (MMA) adhesive systems and the ability to produce and dispense the products rapidly in bulk quantities.

MMA’s for Marine Applications

SCIGRIP’s SG230 HV is a well-established system that holds both Lloyd’s Registry and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) certifications. It is a two-component, 10:1 mix ratio product for bonding composite and other plastic parts with little or no surface preparation. SG230 features excellent fatigue and vibration resistance for key structural areas and can bond to metal structures with a simple priming process.

The company reports that marine manufacturers are particularly pleased with SG230 HV’s results and performance in hull to deck bonding and stringer to hull bonding.

Another key marine MMA product offering is SG300. This adhesive is ideal for internal and external bonding requirements and very effectively joins metals, metals to plastics, and metals to composites, replacing or reducing the need for mechanical fasteners. SG300 also demonstrates excellent environmental and chemical resistance making it a robust choice for marine applications.

Arjay Bonding Compounds

Following their acquisition of Arjay Technologies Incorporated in 2016, SCIGRIP is now able to supply an extensive range of performance bonding compounds for the composites industry that offer strong and supremely versatile assembly solutions. Key products suitable for marine applications include;

  • 7121 Vinyl Ester Compound
  • 5121 Premium Radius Compound 
  • 2121 Radius Compound

These products also perform exceptionally well in the transportation market.

Bulk Dispensing Capabilities

Thanks to Magnum Venus Products International’s (MVP) mixing and bulk dispensing equipment, SCIGRIP is able to efficiently supply MMA products in large format bulk packaging. MVP serves the needs of the growing composite market and specializes in pumping systems and accessories for closed and open molding technology.
