DOW AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS: Composite Bonding Adhesives
A new composite bonding adhesive is available from this company. BETAFORCE composite bonding adhesives reportedly are designed to support hybrid constructions such as lightweight solutions. Multi-material vehicles are one of the most promising approaches to reach weight reduction without compromising on other priorities such as safety or comfort. Composites from carbon fibers are now reportedly seeing a growing share in the material mix.
Besides weight reduction, structural adhesives can also provide processing benefits, making them beneficial from a production point of view. Among the production advantages are the pre-treatment-free joining of carbon fiber, optimized open times and balanced mechanical properties regarding optimal stiffness and driving properties.
