SCIGRIP’s MMA’s improve boat yard efficiencies

SCIGRIP will showcase a range of cutting-edge structural adhesives which are helping boat yards improve their production efficiencies without compromising the performance of the structural bond at METS 2018, which takes place in Amsterdam from 13-15 November (Booth No. CMP.74.EL).

The company’s wide portfolio of methacrylate adhesives tailored to the marine sector, combined with a high level of customer technical support, has led to SCIGRIP’s position as a key supplier to some of the largest ship and boat yards in the US and Europe, including the Ferretti Group and Chris Craft Boats.

The company’s wide portfolio of methacrylate adhesives tailored to the marine sector, combined with a high level of customer technical support, has led to SCIGRIP’s position as a key supplier to some of the largest ship and boat yards in the US and Europe, including the Ferretti Group and Chris Craft Boats.

Offering strength, robustness and ease of use, SCIGRIP’s structural adhesives, including flagship products SG230HV and SG300, are suitable for large and small bonding projects and are offered with a full package of mixing and dispensing equipment. Typical marine bonding applications include: hull to deck joints, internal structures, interior fit-out, aluminium sail tracks to carbon masts, aluminium and steel structural components and gel coated structures.

Suitable for bonding a wide range of substrates with little to no surface preparation and offering working times of 5 to 80 minutes and fixing times of 15 minutes to 4 hours, SCIGRIP adhesives speed up the build process and offer yards greater flexibility when planning their production schedules.

Ferretti specifically chose to work with SCIGRIP’s SG230HV as it is Lloyds and ABS-certified and can be used with little to no surface preparation. This reduces both the production time and presence of dust that is normally produced by grinding and sanding, resulting in improved working conditions for the laminators, and minimal time associated with the removal and disposal of dust particles.

SCIGRIP adhesives also appealed to Ferretti’s composite assembly department because they provide a high mechanical bond strength and can be used reliably in their off-line laminating process.   Suitable for bonding various substrates, such as acrylic, PVC, ABS, composites and primed metals, SG230HV also features excellent fatigue, impact and sag resistance.

SG300, another product being showcased, is a high-performance methacrylate adhesive with a balance of strength and permanent toughness for composites, thermoplastics and primerless metal bonding, with minimal surface preparation. Its choice of working times result in easy adaptation to specific application and process requirements, and it is ideal for internal or external bonding and replaces or reduces the need for mechanical fasteners.

Thomas Race will present both products at his ‘Construction in Process’ demonstrations, where he will show visitors how they can be used in a wide range of marine bonding applications, from large GRP structures to small fasteners.  The demonstrations take place on Tuesday 13th Nov at 1pm and Wednesday 14th Nov at 11am.
