Reducing adhesive costs

"At the present time users of industrial adhesives probably are looking to reduce unit costs and improve their processes."

This is
the view of Mick Beeson, general manager of ThreeBond, who is promoting the company's decision to offer full site surveys by its engineers free of charge. "We are aware of the pressures on users at the moment, and of the fact that other companies involved in the manufacture and supply of adhesives are downscaling their presence in the market. However, it seems to us that this is a critical time when the support that ThreeBond can offer can be of especial value. In summary, we are bucking the industrial trend and choosing now as the time to invest in the European market by increasing the company's presence, production, and customer consulting resources."

Mike Beeson explains that the ThreeBond site survey looks at all aspects of adhesive selection and dispensing as well as the possibility of replacing other fastening technologies leading to the potential of significant savings in time and materials. Areas covered include those in which the company offers "over 50 years of experience" - gasketing, sealing, potting, and bonding. "In addition, we can advise on everything from instant cyanoacrylates, silicones, anaerobics, polymers, resins, and other specialist products." ThreeBond also is concentrating on highlighting the need to keep stocks low and managing shelf life - "important factors in selecting the optimum adhesive and its dispensing system".

Upon completion of the survey the company will provide a detailed report that will outline potential improvements, including estimated cost savings and anticipated quality benefits.
