Acrylic Bonding
AOC develops the most technologically advanced bonding resins for manufacturers of thermoplastic-lined
spas and bathware. In addition to providing superior adhesion, HyCryl™ bonding resins are designed for
improved throughputs and high filler loadings – even in low-styrene formulations. For some manufacturers,
exceptional HyCryl™ bonding reduces storage, mixing and processing costs because a single resin is used
to back up a variety of surfaces, including gel coat, acrylic and ABS.
