APPLICATION OF ADHESIVES IN POWER ENGINEERING

9th June 2010 at Huntsman Advanced Materials (UK), Duxford.

The format of the day followed that of previous events with papers before and after lunch, followed by a site tour but with an added hands-on session.

The event was well-attended with 17 delegates. A joint presentation was given by 2 Huntsman colleagues offering applications for Huntsman’s adhesive types and afterwards by an independent consultant who gave a talk on a much broader range of adhesive chemistries and their applications. He was very well received. All delegates were sent a copy of the presentations.

After lunch, a hands-on session enabled delegates to experience handling and application of some adhesives and dispensing from cartridges to see the variation from water-viscous liquids to thixotropic pastes.

The day ended with a tour of the Duxford site to see the main production plant, and the adhesives small-packing plant
