Polynt Composites has developed the latest product in its range of Gravicol Bonding Pastes for composite bonding.

Gravicol 2015 is a pre-accelerated bonding paste based on unsaturated polyester resin which has been developed for static bonds and bonding of thin joints in composite parts.

The main benefits of Gravicol 2015 bonding paste include its good flexural strength and high compressive strength. It is a semi rigid bonding paste without fibres. It has a very smooth consistency and is easy to apply using a spatula or comb applicator, the company says. Gravicol 2015 demonstrates low shrinkage after curing and is suitable for most bonding applications. It cures at room temperature (15-25°C) using MEKP peroxide.

Gravicol 2015 is a viscous material curing to a dark grey final colour.
