PowderBondPP has been developed to address the well-known short-comings in current polypropylene-to-metal bonding methods and delivers a strong polypropylene-to-aluminium bond, unequalled by other products and systems on the market.
PowderBondPP demonstrates tensile bond strengths greater than 10MPa, the composite needs no pre-treatment, the process is rapid and repeatable, and no messy adhesives are used. bigHead’s Lean Bonding® system is a fast, clean and reliable way of bonding fasteners onto composite and metal substrates with a cycle time that can be as rapid as 10 seconds and PowderBond PP fits perfectly into this process.
As Matt Stevens, Director, bigHead commented:
“Clearly the two technologies have a natural synergy and our research collaboration seeks to looking specifically at creating strong reliable bonds to PP, with a simple, customer-ready process.”
James Grant, Director, Powdertech Surface Science said:
“PowderBondPP is certainly a lean manufacturing process and fits well with bigHead’s impressive Lean Bonding® solution. We anticipate exciting results from our collaborative research and testing programme.”
