Huntsman Advanced Materials, together with Intertronics, has launched a portfolio of structural adhesives
Huntsman Advanced Materials, together with the Adhere brand from Intertronics, has launched Araldite 2000 PLUS – a portfolio of structural adhesives, optimised to help industrial engineers around the world bring complex plastic and metal-based design projects to life.
The Araldite 2000 PLUS range of adhesives offers solution based on three key chemistries – epoxy, methacrylate and polyurethane.
Peter Swanson, Adhere brand leader at Intertronics, explains: “I am delighted with this really major development which develops us further into structured bonding of plastics as well as metals, together with one of the very best market leaders in the world.”
The launch of the range aligns Huntsman’s industrial adhesive offering more closely to the needs of the world’s leading industrial designers. To construct the range, Huntsman has re-engineered products from its classic family of Araldite structural adhesives and has also added new solutions that were previously unavailable to the global adhesive market.
Araldite 2000 PLUS adhesives are lightweight and form long lasting, durable bonds that are resistant to demanding conditions, including high sheer and peel, compression, moisture and extreme temperature changes. The portfolio comprises 14 products. Each product can improve performance and longevity of the materials they bond. The range is split into two main areas, dividing products for metal and plastic bonding, making it easier to access specific performance demands and ultimately find the best solution for customers.
“The Araldite name has always been synonymous with quality,” comments Doug Thompson, global marketing manager for adhesives at Huntsman Advanced Materials. “Through ongoing work with our valued distributors and their customers, Huntsman identified that engineering substrates, like plastics, metals and composites, are now the most popular materials used by modern design engineers. The launch of Araldite 2000 PLUS addressed many of the design issues we know these engineers face on a daily basis. The range extends the breadth of our chemistries to include superior fastening solutions.”
