Driven by the need to move towards a low-carbon economy whilst aiming to fulfill objectives to reduce cost, increase operating efficiencies and improve performance, weight reduction has become a primary goal in the manufacturing sector.

Araldite industrial adhesives for modern materials

For use on modern materials, a range of Araldite adhesives has been developed which are ideal for use on advanced composites and ‘sandwich’ structures used in weight reduction programmes.

Achieving measurable reductions in weight

Where fixed costs are a significant element of operating cost, the advantages of using these products manifest themselves in both increased strength and the resilience of assemblies, replacing mechanical fixing methods and achieving measurable net reductions in weight as a result.

And the resultant cost benefits

Weight reduction, especially in aerospace, automotive, rail and other transport related industries such as freight, logistics and shipping is a major cost saver, as power to weight ratios improve, fuel is saved and emissions reduced.
