Arkema to Launch Recyclable Composite Adhesive Solutions at JEC World 2022 Arkema to launch composite bonding adhesives and toughening technology for structural adhesives at JEC World 2022. All innovations and product ranges are guided by the same goal: Innovative materials for a sustainable world.

Adhesives for Composite Bonding

Bostik will be showcasing the Pliogrip range of 2-component polyurethane and epoxy structural adhesives for composite bonding. The Performance Adhesives team[i] at Bostik will be available to discuss the classic Pliogrip products as well as new innovative MDI[ii] Free technology for structural bonding applications.

Bostik will also highlight its newly launched R-SAF range, a new generation of . This range can be recycled together with Elium® resin-based composites, through mechanical or chemical processes, allowing the Group to offer a unique solution for truly circular composites.

Also, Bostik will present Bostik® XPU20102 Ultrafast Black, with low monomer, a solution that allows repairing instead of replacing. The product is suitable for repairing cracked bumpers. Bostik® XPU20102 Ultrafast Black is fully in line with Bostik's approach to offering solutions that act as sustainability enablers.

Toughening Technology for Structural Adhesives

Patented toughening technology for composites and structural adhesives with Clearstrength® and Sartomer®.

The new core-shell additive Clearstrength® XT 151 will be introduced. It is an easily dispersible powder that provides high-performance epoxy formulations with outstanding viscosity control and toughness. This new solution is part of the Clearstrength® XT powders range for thermoset resins offering:

  • High durability
  • Best dispersibility for optimal properties
  • Optimized productivity
  • Reduced energy costs.

Arkema will also showcase the new Sartomer® Advanced tough liquid resins, ready-to-use solutions that can be easily incorporated, enabling formulators to reach a unique "high toughness/flexibility" trade-off for more durable materials.

The Sartomer® range of products also includes reactive thinners, crosslinkers and binders, as well as solutions based on renewable raw materials. These products improve the performance and reduce the VOC content of thermoset and thermoplastic composites, as well as biocomposites.
