A recent report projects the global adhesives market to exceed $30 billion USD by 2010. Applications include automotive, aerospace, construction, electronics and industrial assembly. Helping drive this growth is the increasing use of adhesives as alternatives to mechanical fasteners like screws and rivets.
The Generation II Universal Cartridge features a unique in-line design that places one adhesive component behind the other, instead of the traditional side-by-side configuration. This allows the Universal Cartridge to be used with a standard caulking gun instead of the more expensive, product-specific dispensers required for side-by side cartridges.
For adhesive manufacturers, the ability to introduce new products in a package that can be used with an inexpensive, readily available application tool can help facilitate market acceptance and gain market share. Other benefits include:
Maintains correct ratio between adhesive components to ensure performance and bond strength Preassembled and 100% factory tested for trouble-free filling Superior shelf life Eco-friendly design minimizes waste Easily resealed to preserve unused material TAH Industries is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordson Corporation, and a leading manufacturer of motionless mixer dispensing systems for two-component adhesives and sealants.
