It may be a one- or two-part system. We need temperature resistance up to 500˚C, and the adhesive will be applied to fill small gaps in a hot mild steel structure. The required initial setting time is 5 min.
Electric vehicles (EVs) have been rapidly adopted in recent years, and the rate of market growth has shown to be significantly higher than that of the fuel-injected automotive market. Indeed, the global stock of electric cars surpassed five million in 2018.
SESA’s focus for LiDAR and automotive sensors will reportedly be its silicone thermal interface materials (TIMs); visible light-blocking encapsulants; UV-curable, low-modulus adhesives; and anti-smudge coatings.

At the 2019 Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, which will be held September 10-12 in Novi, Mich., Henkel reports that it will display its latest material technologies for cost-effective high-volume assembly, protection, and thermal control of next-generation electric vehicle (EV) battery systems.
This is a good question for two reasons: first, adhesives and sealants often have to fill large irregular gaps and expansion on curing enables them to achieve this; and second, the products usually shrink on curing.
