From the 1st November 2017, we will be launching the Araldite 252-1 as an alternative to Araldite 252 and Araldite 255. Huntsman have been working in collaboration with Airbus to formulate Araldite 252-1 to replace Araldite 252. Araldite 252-1 has now been qualified and meets the requirements for both ASNA 4072 / AIMS 10-03-005 Specifications.
Manufacturing of the Araldite 252 has stopped, and Araldite 255 will continue until the last raw materials are consumed, expected by Q1, 2019.
The reason for these changes is because of a substance in the product that is becoming severely restricted and more sustainable alternatives are being developed.
Huntsman do not have a direct alternative to Araldite 255, however in some circumstances Araldite 252-1 can be offered as an alternative. Please note: The change in the mixing ratio when making the introduction of Araldite 252-1 to your production facility.
Araldite 252 and Araldite 255 will be available on a made to order basis for a short period after this date for customers with special requirements, but this should only be for exceptional circumstances and may carry an extended lead time. We recommend that you start planning, monitoring and reviewing product stock levels to ensure a smooth transition.
Technical data sheets are available upon request.
