Adhesives for Sports and Leisure Equipment

Adhesives are used throughout the sporting goods industry. Generally, equipment made for professional athletes has the latest in technology, however, materials and adhesive technologies are advancing so quickly that sporting equipment for weekend warriors is far advanced from what was current just a few years ago. The substrates we are being asked to bond in sporting goods are the same materials that we are asked to bond in aerospace and automotive markets applications. The Olympic motto, Citius – Altius – Fortius (Faster – Higher – Stronger) applies aptly to the development of adhesives for sporting and leisure equipment. Adhesives allow sporting goods manufacturers to produce FASTER with HIGHER profits a STRONGER product!
