These were some of the reasons that FG Trailers, a manufacturer of custom built trailers based in the North East of England, originally approached Chemique Adhesives.

FG Trailers designs and manufactures bespoke mobile shower trailers for use in decontamination and the event industry. Until recently the company were outsourcing their panel production, however due to their sustained growth and expanding business, they decided to take full control of the production process and create a manufacturing operation in house.

"Chemique Adhesives is a well-known name within our industry, and not only that but they also supplied our existing panel manufacturer, so it was a given as to who I needed to contact" explained Paul Nash, Owner of FG Trailers. "Their extensive knowledge of the panel industry meant that they were able to recommend the right adhesive and application equipment for our exact requirements."

"After speaking with Paul, it was clear that a degree of semi-automation was required for making the panels and so we trialed our portable dispense unit in conjunction with a two component polyurethane adhesive from our Solfre range," said Justin Clark, Chemique Adhesives Business Development Manager.

This was the ideal solution for FG Trailers as not only were both the adhesive and equipment provided by a sole supplier but it also meant that the correct ratio of adhesive was dispensed from the machine, eliminating the need of manual mixing and avoiding human error, which, in turn reduces waste and provides a much cleaner and user friendly application.

The adhesive used with the portable dispense unit is Solfre2 - a two component, solvent-free polyurethane product. Solfre2 is suitable for a variety of applications such as construction panels, truck building, caravan panels and many similar uses where a permanent structural bond is required. Its unique formulation provides superior resistance to chemicals, heat, humidity and thermal shock.

"I'm very pleased with the adhesive and equipment that was recommended by Chemique", continued Paul. "Not only this, but they also provided sound technical advice and Justin fully understood our requirements from the start and was able to offer a tailored solution to suit our needs, which has worked out really well for us".

Chemique Adhesives - Total Service Package includes tailor-made adhesive solutions combined with full engineering and technical support. A team of engineers are on hand to provide regular servicing and support in case of any breakdowns or issues, which can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.
