See the new Araldite products at the IASE Show

Araldite distributor Sil-Mid has extended its product range to include the new silyl-terminated polymers Araldite 2060 White and Araldite 2061 Black.

The new adhesive has been developed to meet the requirement for genuine elasticity in bonding applications. In contrast to the high-strength epoxy and methacrylate-based systems, these one-component adhesives offer outstanding flexibility and elastic recovery combined with high adhesion properties due to their silane modification. The new Araldite products are available, next day delivery, fromwww.silmid.com at a cost of £5.17 per 290ml cartridge.

These properties are combined with good paint ability, weather resistance and outdoor durability, as well as ease of application and they're free of any isocyanates and do not carry any hazard symbols.

They are multi-purpose adhesives for bonding a wide range of substrates, with general industrial applications such as elastic bonding in ship and boat building or solar energy. Core markets include bus, truck, rail and special vehicles such as caravans and camping mobiles.

Following Sil-Mid Ltd's long and continued success in the aviation industry it is now diversifying into new markets and the ambition as part of a strategic intent is to expand its market share by supplying the whole of the transportation sector. "Our partnership with Huntsman Advanced Materials is one that we trust and we value our relationship which has been built over an extensive period. Their products will always feature within our portfolio, we have to continually offer strong and durable products," said Gary Marriner, Sil-Mid's managing director.

Visitors to the forthcoming IASE Exhibition which is being held at the National Motorcycle Museum, on Thursday 20th October can see the products first hand and meet the Sil-Mid team on the stand.
