Araldite® epoxy adhesives have established a reputation over decades for strength and effectiveness. The company may go back a long way but the packaging shows how much the brand has developed its proposition. Nowhere is this clearer than in the packaging.
Araldite® Standard packaging, for example, starts by addressing a main issue for consumers – usability. Araldite®’s packaging is reassuringly understated and a full size clear ‘blister’ pack that shows you exactly what you’re getting.
On closer inspection it is clear that the company has addressed the issue that bugs most consumers, the apparently simple process of getting the product off the pack.
While many manufacturers concentrate on keeping blister and backing card together, Araldite® has perfected a simple ‘slide-out’ arrangement that releases the product in seconds. The syringe pack itself is not just an efficient product dispenser but a kit of parts to make application, use and re-use as efficient as possible.
The twin-barreled pack will dispense equal measures of resin and hardener simply by depressing the plunger. This most important element of product effectiveness is thus ‘built-in’ to the pack.
In addition there are integral ‘extras’ to ensure clean storage and accurate application, a snap off closure is replaced after use with the reseal cap, itself cleverly contained within the syringe handle. There is also an easily detachable application spatula.
As a final touch, the reseal cap is ‘design-coded’ so that it can only refit to the nozzles one way round, so avoiding any contamination between the twin nozzles.
In the industrial section Araldite® products are extensively specified and used by design engineers and manufacturers. In the consumer domain the same rigorous standards are applied on pro duct design to ensure DIYers and professional tradesmen achieve equally high outcomes.
