According to the company, the products have enabled industry to increase production efficiency whilst reducing manufacturing and maintenance costs.

In many industries, manufacturers of metal components are said to be turn ing to structural adhesives to replace or augment rivets, bolts, welding and other traditional fastening methods in their assembly processes.

Adhesives can improve product per formance and aesthetics, reduce over all assembly time, and lower produc tion costs.

Structural adhesives are being used on specialty vehicles such as trailers, truck bodies, buses and construction equipment; to assemble frames, panels, booms, and taxis made of metal, plas tic and composites.

SEM Fire and Rescue, a leading manufacturer of specialised custom truck bodies for the Fire and Rescue market has made available one of its vehicles for which panel bonding was carried out on, using Loctite structural adhesives.

Structural acrylic adhesives are two- part systems that fill large gaps, seal joints, join dissimilar materials and provide a neat appearance.

In addition, these materials deliver thermal and chemical resistance, and distribute stresses evenly across the entire bond joint.

With stress spread across larger areas, the joint is stronger.

By eliminating the holes made with mechanical fasteners, structural acrylics provide a better looking end product and reduce corrosion.
