2023 JEC Composites Innovation Awards Winner - HUNTSMAN Advanced Materials

HUNTSMAN Advanced Materials (Switzerland) and partners(s): Antala – Biesterfeld Group – Bodo Moeller Chemie GMBH – Emanuele Mascherpa S.p.A – Samaro – VIBA NL, developed this New Acrylic Adhesives for A Better World

New technology of non-flammable, low-odor, and primer-free structural acrylate adhesives with a favorable health and safety profile, providing exceptional bonding performance on multiple substrates.

The innovation is a new acrylic adhesives technology that cures fast, creates high strength and high elongation bonds, outstanding stress and impact resistance, and importantly, unlike many structural
adhesives, provides an effective solution to multiple sustainability-related challenges, without
compromising performance (Non-flammable classification, favorable health and safety profile, Low odor and limited surface preparation) (…).

Key benefits

Safety, wellbeing, and productivity
Reduced CO2 emissions (transport)
Financial savings (storage/protection)
Performance, multi-substrates, and composites bonding
Material models available for simulation
