Huntsman Araldite Adhesives

Araldite is a registered trademark of Huntsman Advanced Materials, previously part of Ciba.

The name was first used in 1946 and was given to two tubes of epoxy adhesive. It was subsequently used for acrylic and polyurethane adhesives.

The first synthesis of epoxy bisphenol A resins dates back to 1936 and its discovery is shared by Dr. Pierre Castan (Switzerland) and Dr. SO Greenlee (United States). Dr. Castan’s work was marketed by the Swiss company Ciba, Ltd., which became one of the three main producers of epoxy resins in the world. Ciba’s epoxys business was sold in the late 1990s and now belongs to the advanced materials business unit of Huntsman Corporation.

Huntsman, as a global manufacturer of differentiated chemical adhesives, has approximately 12,000 employees and operates from multiple locations around the world, with an extensive network of distributors.

STANDARD ARALDITE

Two-component epoxy adhesive, a resin and a hardener, which react when mixed. It is the recommended adhesive for all types of high strength joints.

It has filling capacity.

It resists temperatures from -30ºC to +65ºC, resists up to 350kg/cm2, most organic and inorganic solvents, as well as shock and vibration.

QUICK ARALDITE

Two-component epoxy adhesive, a resin and a hardener, which react when mixed. With a very short hardening time, it is ideal for fast bonding. It also fills all types of cavities between the two surfaces to be assembled. It joins practically all materials except polyethylene, polypropylene, PTFE and silicone.

It resists temperatures from -30ºC to +65ºC, resists up to 320kg/cm2, most organic and inorganic solvents, as well as shock and vibration.
