We’ve all heard of Dunlop…

In 2004 Alpha purchased the Industrial Adhesives Division of Dunlop and has since manufactured this well known and established product range to include Thixofix, S1358, S5001 and so on. Dunlop’s history dates back to the early 1900’s and Alpha is proud to have been able to incorporate Dunlop products into the existing Alpha brand name.

Alpha have been first line suppliers of adhesives and sealants into the International Boatbuilding Industry for many years,

With the extremes of temperatures and conditions that have to be endured applications can be very demanding, but Alpha can offer both standard and specialised adhesive and sealant systems in order to achieve the best results.

Safety Equipment

Alpha S2000 and S5001 are generic products in this industry and are used extensively for bonding seams and pockets. In many industries, the adhesive component of the finished product represents a small percentage of the overall cost, but its importance in terms of the quality and durability of the finished product assumes much greater proportions.

Tyre Retread

For many years Alpha Adhesives have been used in the manufacture of tyres. It is this long-standing tradition and knowledge of the industry which has enabled the company, not only to build its reputation in this market sector, but also to stay at the forefront of adhesive technology. In many industries health, safety and environmental considerations are becoming increasingly important and this is particularly the case with the use of solvent based adhesives in the manufacture of retread tyres.
Recent Environmental Protection Acts have further focused the adhesive industry into the need for water-based products. As a result of a research and development programme, Alpha has introduced a range of leading-edge water-based tyre retread adhesives. Not only does the range of Alpha water-based tyre retread adhesives offer considerable health and safety and environmental benefits, but also numerous commercial and application advantages too.
Coverage of the water based products is much greater than solvent based adhesives, resulting in lower costs per tyre and the adhesive is much easier to ap[ply being easier to spray and having a built in bond indicator and a tack time of up to three days. Any necessary changes to spray equipment are relatively simple and low cost and can be assisted by Alpha technical services.
