Hunstman Advanced Materials has won the 2023 JEC Awards Renewable Energy category.

Huntsman Renewable Energies Category Winner at JEC Awards 2023

JEC World: a leading event

The JEC World, which will take place from April 25 to 27 in Paris, is a global trade fair dedicated to composites and their applications. Hosting all major players in a spirit of innovation, this industry-leading event will feature numerous product launches, award ceremonies, startup competitions, conferences, demos and networking opportunities. The delivery to the winners of the JEC Awards will also take place, including Huntsman Araldite. Selection is based on technical interest, commercial potential, collaborations, financial and environmental impact, and originality.

The JEC Awards 2023

The Araldite 2081 adhesive has earned Huntsman a 2023 JEC Award in the Renewable Energies category. This structural acrylic adhesive is differentiated by three main characteristics:

  • Its most favourable GHS classification, which guarantees a more pleasant use with significant savings in personal protective equipment and risk management measures.
  • A flash point above 95°C, which makes the product non-flammable, simplifies storage and transportation, and reduces costs.
  • Its low odour and toxicity.

These three features are not offered at the expense of performance as the adhesive allows strong adhesion to most plastic, composite and metal substrates without requiring lengthy specific surface preparation, significantly reducing production time. In addition, Huntsman will introduce new packaging for its adhesives, which is collapsible, sustainable and high-performance – providing 75% less plastic waste than traditional packaging without compromising performance.

An expanded range of acrylic adhesives

Araldite 2080 extends Huntsman’s range of acrylic adhesives. Like Araldite 2081, Araldite 2080 is also a primerless, non-flammable structural acrylic low odour adhesive with exceptional bond strength and fast reactivity times. These new acrylic adhesives have favourable health and safety characteristics.

Both adhesives solve many common problems manufacturers have faced when using methyl methacrylate (MMA), polyurethane (PU) and other traditional adhesive products. These include harsh odour, flammability issues, high toxicity profiles, and increased lead time for surface preparation, all of which can contribute to higher costs and lower productivity. In addition, toxicity and odour can also affect the health and well-being of workers.

Key Benefits

  • Safety, well-being and productivity
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions (transport)
  • Financial savings (storage/protection)
  • High-performance adhesion to multiple substrates and composites
  • Material models available for simulation
