In keeping with its commitment to deliver high strength bonding solutions into the most demanding marine and offshore applications, SCIGRIP, a global supplier of smart adhesives, has been awarded the ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) certification for its SG230 HV (high viscosity) range of structural products.

SCIGRIP submitted a comprehensive range of data around SG230 HV, therefore allowing ABS to determine if the product met their rigorous specification criteria. Based on a satisfactory review of the physical and mechanical test results, SG230 HV was awarded a Product Design Assessment Certificate (PDA).

Following the PDA certification, a site survey of SCIGRIP's U.S. manufacturing facility in Durham, North Carolina, was conducted to ascertain if the product would be consistently produced in accordance with the specification.

This resulted in additional accreditations, including the issuance of a Manufacturing Assessment Certificate and Type Approval of the product.

Owing to their durability and manufacturing flexibility, SCIGRIP bonding solutions are already used extensively by many US and European boat builders. In addition, the ABS qualification will provide many potential customers the added assurance of product quality and performance.

"This is another significant step towards SCIGRIP extending its relationship with larger sized boatbuilding operations both in the US and Europe. We are delighted to offer these powerful and reliable bonding solutions that have received recognition from such a respected industry standards service," commented Mark Rogan, SCIGRIP's European Sales and Marketing Manager.

SCIGRIP also maintains ISO 9001 certification for all of its manufacturing facilities and has achieved multiple third party product certifications, including Lloyd's.
