Krayden partnered with a manufacturer having difficulties with bonding inner padding to the interior of football helmets. The Issue was the surface was hard to bond and needed a high shear strength. Huntsman Araldite 8680/8685 was used to solve the issue because it provided the best adhesion to their substrates, and it was packaged in 50ml dual cartridges, which was the perfect amount for one helmet.
