Glue beats screw by 150%

The benefits of structural adhesives are recognised by heat exchanger manufacturer.

It was extremely time consuming, tapping and screwing stainless steel plates to the aluminium heating component of the heat exchangers at Worcester Heat Systems – not to mention labour intensive. Opting to swap the traditional method for a structural adhesive has increased productivity by 150%.

Heat exchanger manufacturer, Worcester Heat Systems, has chosen to use Devweld 530 – a non-sagging structural adhesive from Devcon, formulated for general purpose bonding of dissimilar substrates as well as bare metals, ceramics, wood and plastic. It is designed for excellent shear, peel and impact strength over a wide temperature range. The compound is applied via an automatic mixing and dispensing system making it convenient and easy to use.
