Goodbye Araldite AW4859 / HW4859, Welcome Araldite 2019 !

Among Huntsman’s catalog of epoxy products, Araldite AW4859 / HW4859 structural epoxy adhesive has been for several years one of the most technically advanced products.


Its exceptional mechanical strength (up to 33MPa in shear strength), its resistance to high temperatures (up to 140 ° C), its resistance to chemical attacks and its ability to bond most substrates (including most composites) make it one of the most versatile and high-end products in the Araldite catalog. For these reasons, it is used in many industries, such as railway, marine industry, transportation, etc.


For these reasons, this product has been logically selected to be a part of the Core Range Araldite 2000, a reduced selection of products capable of covering the majority of structural bonding applications.


In order to offer a range of simple, easy-to-remember names adhesives, Huntsman has therefore decided to rename this epoxy adhesive: this is how Araldite AW4859 / HW4859 is now becoming Araldite 2019!


There were no modification in specification, formulation or regulatory labeling : the only change is the name of the product ! The first cartridges (50ml or 380ml) with the new name are already available.
