Reducing Adhesive Bond Line Read Through in Auto Manufacturing
Mandates to improve Corporate Automotive Fuel Economy, (CAFE) levels by the year 2025 have sent nearly every sector of the automobile industry scrambling to improve mileage. Weight reduction is seen as critical to this goal. New materials, such as thin-gage composites and high-strength adhesives, are now being used in areas of vehicle construction not even imagined a decade ago. But these materials come with their own challenges, including adhesive bond line read through (BLRT).
This webinar will review the fundamental needs for a successful adhesive bonded composite program, such as heat resistance and fast cure, with emphasis on reducing bond line read through.
- Learn the primary factors that contribute to BLRT.
- Learn about a new tool to measure BLRT of non-painted surfaces.
- Learn how to achieve both fast adhesive cure and stability at e-coat temperatures with minimal BLRT.
- Learn simple, practical tips for reducing BLRT during vehicle manufacturing.
