New Araldite adhesive for automotive sector

New Araldite adhesives extend performance in automotive assembly applications

In 2015, the global automotive adhesive and sealant market was valued at $5 million. With factors including vehicle safety, light weighting and fuel economy continuing to prevail under ever stringent standards and regulations, it’s expected that this market will grow at a compound annual rate of 9% up to 2020.

Among other trends, Huntsman’s introduction of Araldite 2021-1 and Araldite 2022-1 will sees vehicle manufacturers and the automotive aftermarket benefitting from increased levels of productivity and performance on structural adhesive applications.
These two-component, toughened, methacrylate adhesive systems replace Araldite 2021 and Araldite 2022 respectively, with the new products offering measurable improvements.

Both are well suited for use on auto interior modules, exterior finishes, lights, headlamps, repairs and aftermarket operations with significant features including improved elongation at break, notable toughness and resilience to vibrations, dynamic loading, mechanical impact and assembly of dissimilar substrates.

Non-sagging and gap-filling properties enable easy processing and make vertical applications possible. These products also provide good shear strength across various substrates and temperatures up to 100˚C along with tolerance of non-ideal surfaces which enhance their processing capabilities while increasing productivity and performance levels.
