The challenge: a solution to repair speedboats

Huntsman Araldite’s challenge was to create strong joints capable of withstanding high speeds. More specifically, achieving an impeccable hull-deck bond on an 8.5m vinyl speedboat that meets Lloyd’s Register specifications.

The Solution: Araldite 2015-1

This product supports cruising speeds of up to 99 km/h, therefore it has become an effective solution to repair speedboats. The long open working time makes this adhesive a profitable solution. In addition, application through cartridges is possible, without the need to invest in a dosing unit. Additionally, our unique simulation capabilities predict results with a 90% success rate, helping to minimise trial and error.

Araldite 2015-1 is a two-component epoxy adhesive that has a high resistance to dynamic loads. It also has high fracture resistance and good fatigue properties. This product is ideal for bonding different substrates and is also extremely resistant to weathering and dynamic loads. Below, we review the main characteristics of this outstanding product within the adhesives for boats:
