New SCIGRIP® SG5000 Adhesive from IPS Rivals Epoxy Adhesive Performance
Durham, N.C. - New SCIGRIP SG5000 methacrylate adhesive technology from IPS Corporation, produces high performance structural bonding for composites and metals that rival traditional two-part epoxy adhesives. SCIGRIP SG5000 can be used to bond polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy and gel coated composites as well as most metals and thermoplastics with little or no surface preparation or priming. The easy-to-use two part SCIGRIP SG5000 adhesive is applied at a 1:1 adhesive/activator mix ratio and can be dispensed manually with cartridges or with meter-mix equipment. Three different SCIGRIP SG5000 series adhesives are available with working times of 3, 6 and 13 minutes. The adhesives will room temperature cure with fixture times as fast as six minutes. In addition, the fast and hard curing beads allow sanding and painting of exposed surfaces.
