Araldite industrial adhesives has developed a range of toughened epoxy adhesives and toughened methacrylate adhesives specifically to address the problems caused by poor shock absorption or vibration control.
Fewer fatigue cracks
Because bond lines tend to stop crack formation, a structure bonded with Araldite industrial adhesives is inherently safer as the reduced and less severe concentration of stresses are likely to endure fewer fatigue cracks.
Typically such concerns arise in the transport market for road, rail and air sectors but associated challenges are found in sports and leisure markets on items as diverse as carbon fibre racing bikes and golf clubs.
Toughened epoxies and acrylics
Toughened epoxies or toughened acrylics are well suited to these types of application by virtue of their excellent adhesion to the metals and theromoset composites and thermoplastics which are used extensively in these sectors.
Energy diffused across the joint
The use of Araldite products will help to diffuse energy throughout a bonded joint and in addition will retain the stiffness required even when used with hybrid materials and additives.
In addition as a general rule, adhesives have excellent properties which will help to alleviate problems of vibration and sound insulation.
