              • The Technology

                The technology.

                Structural adhesives help create bonds with load bearing capabilities. By joining materials across the entire bond area, they help create joints that resist broad, even forces – like shear, tension, and compression.

              • Products that stand up to pressure

                Products that stand up to pressure.

                When creating load bearing bonds, there’s no room for error. From engineering to assembly, even the tiniest tolerance must be considered. We can help harness your most complex needs into one precise solution – and make it look easy. Our line of structural adhesives includes hundreds of products, each with unique properties designed to meet your most precise specifications. Even our nozzles are engineered to help create the perfect adhesive chemistry every time.
