Makers of glue with high IQ
Specialists in bonding and sealing
All of our products are developed in our on-site laboratories in response to industry feedback. Our Formoa glass bonding range does not require a primer and has high green strength.
The Formoa® range is the development of truly primerless adhesive and sealant technology for all industries. It’s reduced manufacturing costs, work in progress and total life cost. Our Formoa range can also be matched to any colour.
The Aerok® range of structural epoxy adhesives and ultra low-density void fillers have been designed for maximum engineering performance. They cover lap shear and peel strength, durability and performance at extreme temperatures.
The Purok® range is a structural two-component adhesive for bonding. It brings the best features of different adhesive chemistries to provide strong, flexible, temperature resistant bonds that withstand extreme conditions worldwide.
Fist® is a complete range of environmentally-friendly coatings giving short, medium or long-term protection as required. Including temporary peelable and washable coatings, porosity sealers and protection against corrosion.
The Forbond® range is split into two: Double-sided tapes for bonding and sealing for specific materials and climatic conditions, and high-performance structural epoxy for laminating and bonding.
Pyrok® products are two-component polyurethane hybrid fire retardant adhesives with full FST performance. Used for bonding plastics and metals in aerospace and transportation, with colour matching and different cure speeds.
[The gremlin] Water ingress is a hot topic in vehicle manufacturing due to the severity of the issues that can arise from it. These can include; increasing the weight of the vehicle, corrosion of metal components, rotting of plywood flooring, mould and bacteria build up and legal issues with passengers being exposed to slippery floors. Legionella Bacteria are commonly spread through airborne water droplets in vehicle air conditioning systems so it is imperative that water does not enter the systems of the vehicles in the first place.
Total life Durability is a major factor that must be considered in the manufacture of transportation vehicles. Stresses and torsion have to be considered due to vehicle being regularly subjected to potholes, kerbs, reduced height accessibility mechanisms in its daily service life.
Commonly witnessed small issues may seem relatively harmless on the surface but often this issue is just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some examples where simple solutions around flooring have avoided major issues for the end user and have helped to reduce huge warranty claims for our customers.
