Scott Bader to Display Methacrylate Primer-less Structural Adhesives at Composites Europe’15

Published on 2015-09-17. Author : SpecialChem

Scott Bader is exhibiting (stand 5/D37) and giving a technical paper at Composites Europe 2015, which this year takes place at Messe Stuttgart from 22-24 September.

Two new Crestabond® M7 (1:1) grades of methacrylate primer-less structural adhesives now available in black and specially developed for bonding pigmented ABS and carbon fiber composite components, will be promoted at the show. Applications and parts fabricated using Advanced Composites materials and Adhesives will also be on display, including the Spanish Ariane 3 ‘Moto3TM World Championship’ racing motorcycle, which has Crystic® gel-coated and vacuum infused carbon fiber (CF) Crestapol® 1250LV resin composite body panels, which are also structurally bonded with Crestabond, providing lightweight CFRP parts with very high impact strength and damage resistance.

The two new black colored M7 grades added to the 1:1 ratio Crestabond range now offer manufacturers a color choice of either off-white or black to meet any aesthetic requirements in an application in addition to bond performance. Both new black colored grades are variants of the existing Crestabond M7 off-white grades in the range, providing the same attributes, handling and bond performance properties including: excellent fatigue and impact resistance; good gap filling capabilities up to 5mm; and minimal surface preparation required prior to bonding. As with the rest of the range, both black grades are also suitable for structurally bonding a wide range of popular engineering materials such as: FRP, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, and Galvanized metals, ABS, Acrylic and Polycarbonate.

During Composites Europe, a technical paper is being presented on the first day of the show at 1:30pm titled: ‘Gelcoats, Adhesives and Crestapol Resins for Land Transport Applications’, which will include recent successful transportation application case studies using Scott Bader Advanced Materials with CF fabrics, highlighting processing, productivity and performance in use benefits to manufacturers and end users.

Information about the complete range of Scott Bader Advanced Composites materials for manufacturing FRP parts will also be available including: the Crystic Ecogel® range of ultra-low styrene eco-friendly gelcoats, designed for demanding marine, wind energy, transportation and building applications, which can cut emissions by up to 55%; the Crestomer® range of urethane acrylate structural adhesives; high performance ISO-NPG brush and spray Crystic gelcoats for composite bath, basin and shower tray applications; specialty fire, smoke and toxic fumes (FST) Crestapol resins and Fireguard gelcoat and topcoat systems; matched tooling systems along with pattern and plug making specialty products for producing all types of composites molds including rapid tooling and direct molds (LPM – Limited Production Molds).
