SCIGRIP, a global leader in adhesive solutions, showcased its SG900 Seaming Adhesive at the 2013 International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (Ibex) in Louisville, US, presenting it as an exceptionally strong UV–resistant adhesive for boatbuilders and marine construction engineers.

SG900 Seaming Adhesive is formulated with the latest technology for the surfacing industry and offers excellent bonding to a variety of solid surface substrates including acrylics, engineered stone, cultured marble, glass reinforced plastics, polyesters and polyester blended materials. Available in a full range of colours, the room temperature fast-curing SG900 is ideal for a variety of applications, including marine construction and engineering.

“The SG900 Seaming Adhesive is the latest addition to SCIGRIP’s comprehensive offering of high-performance marine adhesive technologies,” explained Karen Brock Amoah, director of sales and marketing. “The newly formulated SG900 delivers superior adhesion properties in a variety of colour choices used in solid surface applications.”

Featuring superior water and chemical resistance, including household chemicals, SG900 is also scuff- and impact-resistant and matches work surface texture when dry. Fabricators will not only benefit from the environmental conformance properties of SG900 adhesives, but also the colour matching choices that include snow white, Alpine white, antique white, linen, vanilla creme, ivory, luminous white, oatmeal, seashell, opal, mocha creme, chocolate, charcoal, onyx and ebony.

SCIGRIP SG900 is a two-component, 10:1 mix ratio adhesive designed for joining and seaming solid surfaces and is available in 250 ml cartridges. SCIGRIP meets the requirements for low VOC emission limits established by the California SCAQMD – one of the most stringent regulations in the US. The use of SCIGRIP SG900 Low VOC products can also qualify contractors for one credit toward the US Green Building Council’s LEED certification for green building.
