Huntsman is a leading global supplier of advanced, high-performance adhesives for the fabrication, assembly and repair of interior and exterior aircraft components.

Huntsman offers a wide range of bonding solutions under the Araldite®, Epibond®, Fastweld® and Uralane® brands. For over 60 years, our products have been used by leading aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, Goodrich, Gulfstream, Bombardier, Bell, Rohr and other OEMs.

Many of the epoxies and polyurethanes are flame retardant and exhibit the low flame, smoke and toxicity characteristics required to comply with regulations such as FAR 25.853 that govern materials used in large commercial aircraft.

Our products are used in the following applications:

  • Component bonding
  • Insert bonding
  • Panel bonding
  • Structural bonding & repair.

Huntsman adhesives offer superior joining and bonding performance on plastics, metals, composites and other substrates. In addition, they also offer manufacturing process improvements and significant reductions in weight over other methods.
