Scott Bader North America
Scott Bader acquired ATC Formulated Polymers Inc. of Burlington, Ontario, on February 4, 2013, combining to become a global leader in the structural adhesives and bonding pastes business, offering a full range of technologies and manufacturing capabilities to meet the needs of composite customers in North America.
Over many years, both Scott Bader and ATC has established product brands and gained a strong reputation for manufacturing a wide range of high performance resins, gelcoats, bonding, tooling, fairing, compression holding and other polyester and vinyl ester based pastes, supplied largely into the North America composites industry, including the marine sector.
As a result of the acquisition, today, Scott Bader resins and structural adhesive products based on its proprietary urethane acrylate and MMA technologies are increasingly being manufactured by the former ATC production plant in Drummondville, Canada, to supply the needs of North American customers.
