SCIGRIP, a global supplier of adhesive solutions, will be showcasing a range of methacrylate (MMA) adhesives targeted at the automotive assembly market during the Advanced Engineering Show in Birmingham, UK (1st- 2nd Nov).
These high strength, toughened formulations rapidly bond interior and exterior carbon fibre components, require little to no surface preparation and can help to improve output through dramatically reduced fixture and de-jig times. SCIGRIP is confident these performance benefits will appeal to automotive manufacturers currently using traditional methods such as polyurethane (PU) products or mechanical fixings to join composite vehicle components.
SCIGRIP enjoys strong supply relationships with a number of Italian automotive OEM’s and the SG300 series (Black) products are used extensively to bond carbon styling components such as seats and vehicle trims.
“We intend to accelerate sales of SCIGRIP MMAs for carbon bonding within the UK auto sector. The Advanced Engineering Show is the perfect forum to develop this initiative. We have recently secured several new and substantial supply contracts with Tier 1 & 2 manufacturers within the UK and Europe, and my team is looking to replicate more of these successes in the coming months”, comments Tim Johnson, European Sales and Marketing Manager.
To demonstrate SCIGRIP MMAs versatility across a range of applications, a number of exhibits will be available to view on the company’s stand 0111. This will include a car seat supplied by an Italian supercar manufacturer and a section of a boat stringer.
The SCIGRIP team welcome media interviews and are available throughout the show should you wish to make an appointment.
