Adhesives for Sports and Leisure Equipment

Adhesives are used throughout the sporting goods industry. Generally equipment made for professional athletes have 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!

Typical Applications:

Sports and Leisure

    • Bonding handles, tips baskets, and flip locks on hiking sticks, trekking poles, walking sticks, ski poles
    • Bonding rubber swim fin components
    • Bonding golf club heads to shafts, bonding the steel ferrule to the junction of the shaft and head, dome coating logos
    • Bonding composite bike frames
    • Bonding helmet linings
    • Threadlocking gun scopes
    • Sealing Ammunition

And many more!

Key Features

Adhesive applications in sports and leisure equipment are so diverse that virtually the entire line of Permabond adhesives and sealants are used. In many applications bonding and sealing with adhesives to replace fasteners allows for weight reduction and increased strength; other key reasons to select adhesive bonding over mechanical fasteners include: reduced costs, increased stress distribution, improved manufacturing process, increased vibration resistance, corrosion prevention, and the ability to design with a wider choice of substrate materials.
