Adhesive Spreading / String Beading

Our oldest industrial application: Manual and automatic adhesive application systems for making sandwich panels such as refrigerated trailers, delivery vans, external doors and SIPs.

Rockingham System have been working in the sandwich panel industry since 2005, experts in metering (sometimes mixing) and spreading single part moisture cure polyurethanes, 2-Part (2K) polyurethanes and 3-Part (3K) polyurethanes* onto various sized panels from door size up to whole walls of refrigerated truck trailers and modular homes.

Typical types of panels our equipment helps manufacture are:-

  • Refrigerated truck trailers and delivery vans
  • Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
  • External doors (composite and UPVC)
  • Modular clean room panels
  • Acoustic panels
  • Whole-wall SIPs (offsite modular homes)
  • RV/caravan wall panels.

Our systems ensure that the correct spacing of adhesive is achieved in “the spread”, the correct grams per square meter is applied and in a speedy but safe manor.

If you are using a single-part polyurethane (MCPU), we apply the water mist to activate the cure to the percentage given on the adhesive's technical datasheet.

If you are using a 2-part we have a disposable mixer and spreader so there is no need for expensive solvent flushing and cleaning.

*3K adhesive is a 3-part mix using the fasted available A-Component and the slowest available A-Component with the standard B-Component, our system will manage all three, mixing the 2 A-Components so that you can dictate the cure time best for your production, layer by layer, panel by panel.
