Rubber To Metal Bonding Agents

Rohm and Haas of USA are one of the world's largest manufacturers of specialty chemicals. They manufacture a wide range of rubber-to-metal bonding agents under the MEGUM and THIXON brands in their plants in Europe and USA.

Megum and Thixon bonding agents offer significant advantages in bonding all types of elastomers to a variety of substrates - metal, engineering plastics, or even other elastomers - and can endure highly aggressive and corrosive environments, particularly in transportation applications. Most of their grades are environmental friendly and are formulated with no reportable levels of lead or other heavy metals, chlorinated solvents, or ozone-depleting chemicals.

Megum and Thixon adhesives offer the highest bond performance, lowest fuming and best sweep resistance in dry film properties plus the highest throughput capability during moulding. They are the preferred choice for many global manufacturers of high quality rubber-to-metal bonded components.
