Bondloc announces collaboration with University of Bolton 31 July 2020

Bondloc UK Ltd has partnered with the University of Bolton in order to help students learn the latest in motorsport industry techniques.

Bondloc is a British manufacturer of engineering and industrial adhesives with over 25 years experience. The National Centre for Motorsport Engineering (NCME) offers a BSc and BEng, both in motorsport, covering design, manufacture and materials, as well as how to function in a top level race team.

Paul Nelson, sales and marketing director at Bondloc said: “We are delighted to announce this close working relationship with the pioneering National Centre for Motorsport Engineering at the University of Bolton. The courses there are fantastic and equip the students for a career in a very exciting and technically fast moving industry. It is great to know that Bondloc adhesive products, and our expertise, will help to strengthen that learning process going forward.”

NCME says that the collaboration will allow for future developments applicable to the motorsport industry to be discussed, trialled and tested by University of Bolton students. Further enhancements will be able to be made to the university’s manufacturing capabilities by developing and testing assemblies and assembly methods through the supply of projects, product and support.

The partnership will also allow for the university to create research streams to develop collaboratively, create industry standard projects for students to enhance their CVs and allow the adhesive and surface treatment industry to be discovered and explored by students.

Mark Busfield, director of NCME, pioneered the motorsport engineering course at the University of Bolton with a dedicated team of industry and academic specialists in 2017. He said: “I am really excited that NCME is collaborating with Bondloc. This will be a great boost to our students’ learning in preparation for them to enter an industry which is constantly at the cutting-edge of new technological developments.”
