Araldite adhesives go for Gold at Royal Palace

Araldite adhesives go for Gold at Royal Palace Medal winning athletes who competed in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy were assured of a grand entrance to the games' official awards ceremony thanks to Araldite adhesives from Huntsman Advanced Materials - one of the original bonding solutions for joining substrates including metal, plastic, composites and glass. Successful Olympians competing at this year's event were presented with medals at the Royal Palace of Turin, which is located at the heart of the Piedmontese capital. Entrance to the palace, which was constructed in the 17th century, is gained through a set of beautiful cast iron gates which were re-constructed at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1996, a programme began to restore the palace and its grounds to their former glory. As part of the scheme, work on the gates was carried out by Novaria Restauri - an Italian specialist in the restoration of historical buildings. As the Novaria Restauri team began cleaning and redecorating the gates, they discovered several gaps in the intricate cast-iron design. The team quickly decided that a tough gap-filling adhesive was needed to make the necessary repairs. After testing a number of products, Araldite 2014 - a two-component epoxy adhesive - was chosen. Araldite 2014 is a high strength epoxy adhesive paste that cures at room-temperature. Demonstrating excellent environmental and chemical resistance, it is ideal for applications where elevated temperatures are likely to be encountered, and is commonly used to bond metals, electronic components and GRP structures.
