SCIGRIP sees orders increase by a third

Adhesive supplier SCIGRIP has enjoyed a strong start to 2017 with a 30% rise in orders from sail and powerboat manufacturers following a number of successful trials in boat yards across Europe.

The company says the success is down to the popularity of its methacrylate (MMA) adhesive systems and the ability to produce and dispense the products rapidly in bulk quantities.

“SCIGRIP has seen a noticeable increase in business within the marine industry across the European market,” said SCIGRIP’s European sales and marketing manager, Tim Johnson. “The most exciting factor of this uplift is that it seems to be spread across both composite bonding applications, for which SG230HV is renowned for and metal bonding applications with SG300. This demonstrates further that SCIGRIP has a great structural adhesive solution for the boat building industry.”

The two-component SG230 HV holds both Lloyd’s Registry and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) certifications and is used for bonding composite and other plastic parts such as hull to deck bonding and stringer to hull bonding.

SG300 is for internal and external bonding requirements to join metals, metals to plastics and metals to composites, replacing or reducing the need for mechanical fasteners. 

Last year SCIGRIP acquired Arjay Technologies SCIGRIP enabling it to supply an additional range of performance bonding compounds for the composites industry.
