Helping to innovate and improve manufacturing
Our structural adhesives form extremely strong and durable bonds with composites, plastics, metals, glass, rubber and many other materials. Designers across industries increasingly find that bonding with Araldite® adhesives solve manufacturing challenges, reduce finished product weights, allow for design flexibility and reduce assembly costs.
Better than mechanical fixings
Just about every industrial item produced is composed of parts which have to be assembled. Mechanical fasteners such as screws, rivets or spot welds are frequently used.
However, engineers now often choose to use structural adhesives. This assembly technique is capable of replacing, or supplementing, mechanical fastening methods - leading to a number of measurable improvements in product performance, operating costs and the end-user experience.
- Outstanding lap shear strength and peel strength
- Reduced component and/or assembly costs
- Improved product performance and durability
- Greater design freedom
- Less finishing operations.
