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 a significant impact on their purchasing decision. But exterior design isn’t just about good looks – components like sunroofs, 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®, Sikasil®, SikaFast®, and SikaForce® provide an efficient and proven way to bond exterior automotive parts.
