Marine (A3701 A/B)

Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) allows you to securely bond and safely repair PVC inflatable products, including boats and lifesaving equipment. It is a two-component ‘contact type’ polyurethane adhesive (2K PU) that gives the manufacturer or user the following benefits.

Securely bonds PVC: developed specifically for bonding PVC
At Apollo, we understand that PVC material has many benefits for the construction of marine products; it is lightweight, flexible and durable. However, we are also aware that most adhesives will cause PVC to leach plasticisers, resulting in bond failure. Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) ensures a secure bond because it is resistant to plasticisers and has been developed specifically for adhering PVC.

Withstands extreme environmental conditions: heat, chemical and water-resistant
PVC inflatable products are subject to wear and tear, especially boats and life-saving equipment. These products are constantly being dragged in and out of salt water and left to dry in intense temperatures. Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) is able to withstand such extreme conditions. It has a temperature resistance of -30-120°C and is resistant to both sea water and chemicals.

Extremely versatile: multipurpose adhesive, with several uses
Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) is a two-component multipurpose adhesive that bonds plasticised and un-plasticised PVC, as well as nylon fabric, polyurethane fabric and foam. The versatility of Apollo (A3701 A/B) reduces the number of additional adhesives you need to store onsite. Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) is also suitable for use as a one-component product for temporary repairs, which is highly convenient if a repair needs to be dealt with quickly and effectively.

Suitable for professional and non-professional use: toluene-free adhesive
It is illegal to sell adhesives that contain toluene to the general public because of the risks it may pose to human health. Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) is a toluene-free adhesive, which means you can sell it to both professional and non-professional customers. This gives you a larger potential customer base, especially if you wish to sell Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) to customers who require an easy-to-use repair product.

Minimises cost and task-time: simple to apply and develops a ‘contact type’ bond
Apollo Marine (A3701 A/B) eliminates the need for you to invest in expensive application equipment because it is easily and quickly applied with a brush or roller. It also forms a ‘contact type’ bond after substrates have been pressed together. This gives excellent handling strength, which allows you to move on to the next stage in the process quickly.
