Scott Bader Inc is exhibiting its range of structural adhesives and advanced composites materials at SAMPE Long Beach 2016, which takes place in Long Beach, California, from 23-26 May.

These include its Crestabond primer-less MMA adhesives and Crystic Crestomer urethane acrylate adhesives.  The Crestapol range of high performance acrylic resins are also being promoted at SAMPE Long Beach.  

New structural adhesive products being shown for the first time in the USA, launched earlier in the year at JEC World 2016 in Paris, include Crestabond M1-30 and M1-60 structural adhesive marine grades approved by DNV-GL for a variety of joining applications and substrates, Crestabond M1-02, a new sub-three minute curing grade for higher volume assembly of metal, plastic and composite components, Crestabond PP-04, a 1:1 grade specifically developed for rapidly bonding low surface energy thermoplastics, including polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE), and additional black pigmented Crestabond grades for improving the bond joint aesthetics of black ABS and carbon fiber (CF) composite components.     

‘SAMPE has become an established advanced materials event for Scott Bader Inc. attracting both North American and overseas visitors from key industry sectors such as Aerospace, Transportation, Construction, Marine, Wind Energy and Medical,’ said Nick Padfield, president of Scott Bader Inc. ‘It is an ideal show for us to meet key specifiers from leading manufacturing companies looking for materials solutions.’
