Leaders in the field of adhesive bonding and sealant technology, we deliver intelligent solutions for our clients.
All of our products are developed in our on-site laboratories in response to industry feedback. Corrosion costs the manufacturing industries billions; so we have developed our NEW Formoa-AC range of sealants to protect against corrosion with no compromise on the adhesives performance.
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.
Forgeway was established as an adhesive manufacture in 1994 after recognising a gap in the structural adhesive and industrial adhesives markets. With the increasing need for vehicles to be lighter, safer and faster to build, it was evident that adhesives would be more likely to play a greater role in the future of automotive manufacturing. There would be a need to support manufacturers wanting to make the change from mechanical fixings to industrial strength glue.
Why is weight loss such a hot topic?
With the drive to manufacture more economical vehicles; there will be no avoiding the issue of weight reduction in the coming years.
Corrosion is defined as the degradation or destruction of metals and alloys in an environment by the process of electrochemical or chemical process. It affects all aspects of industry; automotive, construction, transportation, production, marine and manufacturing to name a few. A recent study by NACE International found corrosion costs $2.5 trillion globally, contributing to 3.4% of gross domestic product.
