Scott Bader makes prestigious awards shortlist

Scott Bader has been shortlisted for this week's UK Private Business Awards 2012 Technology Innovation of the Year being held at the Royal Opera House on the evening September 6th.

The company has been cited for the 'Technology Innovation of the year' category for the outstanding chemical research and innovative development of their Crestabond range of industrial primer-less structural adhesives. Other companies shortlisted in this category, sponsored by Currencies Direct, are: Dyson (Dyson James Ltd), EMSC (UK) Ltd, and Stickyeyes.

The Scott Bader R and D team of chemists and technologists successfully developed this new range of structural adhesives, which are designed for bonding a wide range of substrates, including metals, plastics and composite materials, used in industrial applications. In addition to having excellent adhesive properties, by also being primer-less and curing rapidly, manufacturers using Crestabond have also been able to reduce overall production costs and increase productivity.

Crestabond structural adhesives are being used successfully by many UK and overseas manufacturing companies operating in the building and construction, marine, wind energy, land transportation and vehicle industries. Malcolm Forsyth, Scott Bader's Global Director, Adhesives & Advanced Composites Business, commented: "We are delighted that Scott Bader's innovative Crestabond structural adhesive technology has been given public recognition by making it to the final four national short-list in the Technology Innovation of the Year award and are looking forward to the dinner, when we will find out if we have won this prestigious award."
