Huntsman Advanced Materials
Huntsman Advanced Materials is a leading global systems of synthetic polymers formulated for customers who require high-performance materials that exceed by far the properties, functionality and durability of traditional materials supplier. Structural bonding techniques Huntsman Araldite ® epoxy adhesives, occupy a key position in the engineering industry. More and more engineers in their own struggle against the clock to develop and market lighter and more durable products, resort to industrial adhesives of Huntsman Araldite to address complex design problems. The security afforded by its 60 years of experience as a pioneer in the technology of epoxy adhesives and industrial adhesives, Araldite Huntsman has developed a complete range of adhesives to meet the new challenges of engineering. This range based on three chemicals (epoxy, polyurethane and methacrylate), provides a superior grip and adhesion to plastics, metals and composites under the trade name Araldite ®.
Huntsman Araldite History
The first synthesis of bisphenol A epoxy resins dates from 1936 and its discovery is shared by Dr. Pierre Castan (Switzerland) and Dr. SO Greenlee (United States). Dr. Castan’s work was sold by the Swiss company Ciba, Ltd., which became one of the top three global producers of epoxy resins. Epoxies business Ciba was sold in late 1990 and now belongs to the unity of advanced materials business of Huntsman Corporation.
Huntsman Araldite as distinct chemical adhesives manufacturer worldwide, has approximately 12,000 employees and operates from multiple locations around the world, with an extensive network of distributors which Antala is the head of Huntsman Araldite in UK and Ireland.
More than 9,000 companies worldwide that use technology glues, adhesives and two-component epoxy resins of Huntsman Advanced Materials in numerous key sectors: adhesives and inks, aerospace, automotive, coatings, construction, electronics, health sector, marine engineering, transmission and distribution, sports equipment and wind power generation.

Araldite 2014-1 structural adhesive
Araldite 2014-1 structural adhesive is a two component, room temperature curing, thixotropic paste adhesive of high strength with good environmental and excellent chemical resistance.Used for bonding of metals, electronic components, GRP structures and many other items where a higher than normal temperature or more aggressive environment is to be encountered in service. The low out gassing makes this product suitable for specialist electronic telecommunication and aerospace applications.
Araldite 2031 epoxy adhesive application on different substrates
Araldite 2031 is a two component epoxy adhesive, which cures at room temperature and provides a elastic bonding. It is thixotropic and non sagging up to 10mm thickness. It is particularly suitable for bonding metals and composites. It also has good adhesion on polyamides.
Electronic encapsulation with Arathane
Resin enclosure system to protect semiconductor devices from external influences (humidity, dust, vibration, shock), allowing the sending and receiving of signals and improving handling and assembly. Application Transformers, filters, capacitors etc.
