SCIGRIP presents advanced adhesives for marine applications

SCIGRIP, a leading supplier of smarter adhesives solutions, is exhibiting at the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam, next week, presenting a tailored range of structural, methacrylate adhesives (MMAs) that have been developed to offer strength, robustness and ease of use for boat and shipbuilders.

Manny Tesfaye, SCIGRIP’s Director of Global Technical Services, will also be conducting technical demonstrations throughout the event.

Product highlights

Product highlights at METS 2017 will include SG300, a high-performance methacrylate adhesive with a balance of strength and toughness for bonding metals, composites and thermoplastics. SG300 is ideally suited to internal or external bonding and replaces or reduces the need for mechanical fasteners. “This product features excellent environmental and chemical resistance and is available in a range of working times for production flexibility,” the company explains.

SG230 HV is a two-component, 10:1 mix ratio product for bonding composite and other plastic parts with little or no surface preparation. SG230 is said to feature excellent fatigue and vibration resistance for key structural areas and can bond to metal structures with a simple priming process.

Both SG300 and SG230HV possess Lloyd’s Register approvals, a third-party verification of performance and production processes.

MMA typical marine applications

SCIGRIP MMA typical marine applications include:

  • Bonding large composite parts such as hull to deck joints, internal structure, stringers and cores
  • Interior and exterior fit out and assembly
  • Attaching anodised aluminium sail tracks to carbon fibre yacht masts
  • Assembly of steel and aluminium structural components
  • Bonding bright white and gelcoated hull and superstructure part

METS visitors are invited to attend the SCIGRIP Technical Demonstrations on the Construction in Process Stage on 14 and 16 November. Manny Tesfaye will demonstrate the use of structural MMA adhesives to bond various substrates using minimal surface preparation to deliver rapid, fatigue resistant, structural bonds within minutes.
