For decades, manufacturers across the transportation, wind and general assembly markets have used traditional MMA and PU-based adhesives for structural bonding applications. Yet when using these traditional products, manufacturers experience an aggressive odor, flammability issues, high toxicity profiles and added production time for surface preparation. Each of these can contribute to high operational costs and lower productivity, while factors such as toxicity and odor can be hazardous to worker health and wellbeing.
Huntsman has developed a low odor, non-flammable classified, and primer-free structural acrylate adhesives with exceptional bond performance and a low toxicity profile.
In this episode we welcome guests Mark Ecker, Senior Account Manager for Adhesives, and Mike Andreotta, Regional Marketing Manager for the Automotive and Industrial markets. We’ll be discussing why adhesives are important in manufacturing today, how product design engineers go about selecting the right adhesive, and unique applications where choosing an adhesive over mechanical fasteners positively "changed the game" in product design. You’ll also learn some interesting facts about adhesives, their history, and how everything you use every day is impacted by adhesives.
