We are using epoxy adhesives to bond steel substrates that are exposed periodically to both 150˚C and as low as 0˚C. Our problem is in maintaining adhesion to the two steel surfaces at such divergent temperatures because of the response of materials to thermal conditions when going through heating and cooling cycles. Do you have any suggestions?

Thermoplastic olefin (TPO) materials belong to the larger group of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs). As such, they come in many formulations and can be molded into parts with different surface finishes. Increasingly used in the automotive industry as an alternative to high-cost, heavy metal materials, TPO plastics present unique bonding challenges for pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) manufacturers.
