SikaTherm®

Multi-Purpose Adhesives for Flocking and Lamination Applications

Our SikaTherm® product line includes water-based and solvent-based one-component (1C) and two-component (2C) systems. Long open times and good resistance to heat or hydrolysis make them ideal for flocking and laminating applications with textile, wood, plastics and other common substrates. Curing occurs as the solvent or water in the system evaporates with curing speed dependent on the ambient temperature.

MAIN MATERIAL PROPERTIES

SikaTherm® adhesives cover a broad range of applications, substrates and processes, so material properties vary depending on which substrates are being bonded.

APPLICATION

HeadlinerGlove boxesDoor insertsCenter consolesSikaTherm®
adhesives are typically applied by roller-coater, brush or spray gun to
both joining surfaces. For applications with non-treated polyolefin
substrates, a SikaSense® primer can be used to improve adhesion. 2C
systems must be properly mixed to ensure reliable performance. Our System Engineering team is available to provide advice on selecting and setting up suitable application equipment.
