The sign and display adhesive range, which produces consistently reliable results on a wide range of signmaking substrates, including plastics, metals and composites,
are accordingly grouped into four different categories.
PPX5 Ultimate Plastic Bonder, which is recommended for use on plastics, tackles the issues associated with low energy surfaces, such as polypropylene(PP) and polyethylene(PE), both of which are regarded as being notoriously difficult to work with, as they repel rather than attract adhesion. PPX5 is specially developed to provide a tough resilient bond to surfaces with no special pre-treatment.
Product 42 is one of the highest performing US adhesives for bonding clear PMMA(acrylic) and there are a number of other clear plastics adhesive options available, depending on the bond speed and viscosity required.
SG300 and SG5000 iare ideal for bonding metals to metals and metals to plastics, thus replacing or reducing the need for metal fasteners or welding.
UV106, the preferred option for use with glass, is a thixotropic UV adhesive for bonding clear plastics to glass and metals. This grade can be used without the need for expensive UV lamps.
The bonding of GRP, carbon fibre, Alucabond and other composite materials is also catered for within the range, with products offering cure speeds of anything from two minutes up to two hours.
The sign and display range is available through SCIGRIP’s national distributor network and comes in both easy to use cartridge systems and bulk packaging. For further information visit: www.scigrip.com
