May 18, 2007
Huntsman Advanced Materials, together with the adhere brand from Intertronics, has launched Araldite® 2000 PLUS - a new portfolio of structural adhesives, optimised to help industrial engineers around the world bring complex plastic and metal-based design projects to life.
Products from the Araldite 2000 PLUS range were unveiled at an exclusive launch event in Barcelona, Spain on Friday 4th May which was attended by Huntsman's senior management team and partners from the company's European distribution network, including Peter Swanson - adhere brand leader at Intertronics, who explained: "I am delighted with this really major development which develops us further into structured bonding of plastics as well as metals, together with one of the very best market leaders in the world."
The launch of the Araldite 2000 PLUS range aligns Huntsman's industrial adhesive offering more closely to the needs of the world's leading industrial designers. To construct the range, Huntsman has re-engineered products from its classic family of Araldite structural adhesives and has also added new solutions that were previously unavailable to the global adhesive market.
Araldite 2000 PLUS adhesives are lightweight and form long lasting durable bonds that are resistant to the most demanding conditions including high sheer and peel, compression, moisture and extreme temperature changes. The global Araldite® 2000 PLUS portfolio comprises 14 products. Each product can improve the performance and longevity of the materials they bond and is individually suited for joining a wide variety of substrates including plastics, metals and composite materials. Adhesive experts at Huntsman work closely with manufacturers to understand their engineering requirements and offer comprehensive advice on a wide range of design projects. Critically the Araldite® 2000 PLUS range is supported by industry leading technical support packages which enable Huntsman to provide tailored advice designed specifically to address the needs of designers, manufacturers and end users alike.
Araldite® 2000 PLUS adhesives are delivered to engineering and industrial customers via UK distributor Intertronics. For more information about Araldite® 2000 PLUS please visit www.intertronics.co.uk and www.araldite2000plus.com
