JEC Europe 2014 - Scigrip, a global supplier of smart adhesive solutions, will be launching an enhanced methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive that significantly reduces bond line read-through (BLRT) in composite components. 

With this new product, customers can work with a greater selection of materials and thinner substrates can be bonded without unsightly “read-through” lines and distortions on the outer skin of the part. It will appeal to manufacturers of composite structures in the marine and transport markets looking to improve the aesthetics of their components while optimising their design, production speed and costs.

An enhanced development of the low-exotherm adhesive SG230HV, this latest product innovation from Scigrip demonstrates low heat distortion, low chemical shrinkage, fast controllable cure speeds and continues to provide the excellent surface adhesion that reduces the need for dusty mechanical grinding or peel-ply processes in the assembly stage.

Scigrip will also be introducing a specialised range of engineering adhesives, further expanding its technology offering to the composites industry.
