Exterior Adhesives Applications
Lightweight Bonding Solutions for Exterior Components
The vehicle exterior provides consumers with more than just a first impression; it’s a key aspect of the vehicle’s brand and can have significant impact on their purchasing decision. But exterior design isn’t just about good looks – components like sun roofs, headlights or tailgates also play an important role in aerodynamics, driver visibility and vehicle safety.
Bonding those components to the exterior presents its own unique challenges: keeping weight low, meeting expectations for environmental performance and accommodating manufacturing requirements. Sikaflex®, SikaTack®, Sikasil®, SikaFast® and SikaForce® provide an efficient and proven way to bond exterior automotive parts.
