Scapa announces new non-halogen based flame retardant adhesive capabilities for aerospace bonding and lamination applications

Scapa, one of the leading custom adhesive coating and lamination companies worldwide, is proud to introduce new halogen free, antimony trioxide free, based adhesive capabilities to address the growing need for “green” fire retardant formulation alternatives in aerospace manufacturing, assembly and refinishing applications.


Halogen and antimony-trioxide free based adhesives are environmentally friendly and offer aerospace manufacturers and refinishers a variety of benefits versus traditional halogen based adhesives including no hydrochloric by-products and lower smoke generation.


Recent halogen and antimony-trioxide free application successes with leading aerospace OEMs include the bonding of carpets, floorings and galley mats in airline cabins. Additionally, halogen and antimony-trioxide free based FR adhesives are ideal for the manufacture and refinishing of seating and interior cosmetic fixtures.


Scapa offers its partners customized solutions and will work within product and industry spec to provide the optimal solution. Scapa’s onsite technical service and R&D teams utilize advanced laboratory equipment systems and implement tolerance specific testing procedures, including UL 94 and FAR 25.853 vertical flame testing methods.
