Marine adhesive specialists application
We have worked closely with a number of Luxury Motor Yacht and Narrow boat builders to understand their specific needs for adhesive. The main adhesive used is based on a methacrylate adhesive and has been used extensively by Marine companies to bond either GRP Fibreglass to itself or locating brackets to the GRP without damaging the integrity of the hull.
The most common use is to bond the deck to the hull. Using one of our structural acrylic adhesives gives many advantages:
- Fast setting of adhesive leading to quicker production.
- Structural bond to the GRP giving durability and resistance to stress and load.
Their are also endless applications for tapes and re-closable fasteners, such as:
