Liquid Adhesives for Interior Parts Applications

Our SikaSense® product line includes water- and solvent-based 1- and 2-component adhesive systems, which are engineered to create an elastic, strong, and durable bond on plastics, wood, (synthetic) leather, cotton fibers or wood fibers. They are primarily used for interior parts applications. For the 1-component systems, curing occurs as the solvent or water in the system evaporates, with curing speed dependent on the ambient temperature. 2-component systems react with the curing agent and cure most independently from ambient conditions.

Main Material Properties

SikaSense® adhesives cover a broad range of manual applications, substrates, and processes, so material properties vary depending on which substrates are being bonded. Viscosities and rheological properties can be adjusted and optimized to meet special process requirements. 

Applications

SikaSense® adhesives are typically applied by 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.
