Case Study

Application: Bonding Primary and Secondary Train Structures with ARALDITE 2053 Adhesive

Find New Possibilities for Bonding Metallic and Composite Structures in Lightweight Designs

The Challenge

Bonding an industrial X-ray scanner casing which consists of dissimilar materials.

The Solution

Since it is highly radiation-resistant, ARALDITE® 2012 adhesive is perfect for specialized jobs like this.

The ability to bond metals and plastics means this adhesive can be used for the entire application, instead of using several adhesives. The short curing time speeds up the entire production process resulting in time saved and long-lasting bonds.
