Araldite adhesives meet the everyday challenges encountered in the Oil and Gas industry - such as extreme environments and adverse operating conditions.

We offer a wide-range of structural and repair adhesives to address the following issues.:-

  • Extremes of temperature
  • Chemical attack
  • High operating pressures
  • Sea and fresh water conditions.

Applications include:

LNG tanks

Araldite structural adhesives are certified to meet the stringent requirements of LNG tank manufacturing. Because of extreme environmental and temperature conditions, the storage and transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) can present many challenges. Our epoxy and polyurethane adhesives are certified for use in cryogenic insulating panel construction for LNG tankers, barges, and onshore storage or “bunkering”.

Pipe bonding

Bonding composite or metal pipes can potentially lower manufacturing costs, provide high corrosion resistance, requires no threading or welding, and offers low thermal conduction and minimizes heat loss.
