The new product complements the previous FusePly® 100 grade, introduced in 2018 which has now been renamed FusePly® 350 to reflect its compatibility with 350°F cure film adhesives. Both grades offer step-change bonding performance and durability and can easily be integrated into existing manufacturing processes as an upgrade for traditional surface preparation methods.
