Scapa Introduces Non-halogen-based FR Adhesive Coatings
Scapa Group plc — a United Kingdom-based global manufacturer of bonding solutions and adhesive
components for industrial, automotive, electronics and healthcare applications — now offers
customized environmentally friendly non-halogen-based flame-retardant (FR) adhesive solutions for
industrial uses. According to the company, non-halogen-based adhesives produce no hydrochloric
by-products, generate less smoke than halogen-based adhesives, are stable to aging, have low
migration, do not gain weight and are waterproof.
The company, whose Scapa North America subsidiary is based in Windsor, Conn., will work with
its customers to provide solutions that meet product and industry specifications. It also offers
onsite technical service, and uses state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and tolerance-specific
testing procedures such as UL 94 vertical flame test methods.
