Structural bonding : new structural adhesives for marine industry

In marine construction, assembling structural elements of the boat together is essential. The use of structural adhesives ensures the durability of the joints,
where reliability and resistance to mechanical stresses of bonded connections are crucial.

Structural bonding offers a real advantage over mechanical fasteners and composite lamination in the marine industry : it often allows assemblies to be carried
out more quickly, and to reduce labor costs. The most difficult part is to choose the most suitable adhesive, which offers the right balance between mechanical
resistance, flexibility and ease of process.

For more than 70 years, Huntsman has been a major actor in industrial adhesives, and has developed innovative and reliable solutions. Araldite adhesives for
the marine industry have been specially designed for the construction of boats, whether commercial vessels, pleasure yachts or racing boats, while trying to
improve process efficiency, and to reduce time and costs.
