With the constant demand to lower costs and environmental pressures to lower emissions, dry powdered adhesives are the best and most economical answer.
Being dry, there are no solvents to recover or water to dry off, hence lower production costs.
There are a wide variety of hot melt powders used in the automotive industry. Such hot melt adhesives must all have good heat resistance to meet stringent OEM test requirements. Our Curabond range of powders offer excellent heat resistance due to their ability to cross-link (cure) and are particularly suited to deep draw moulding for door panels, parcel shelves (trays) and headliners whereby conventional thermoplastic adhesives display a tendency to delaminate when the mould is released due to the adhesive still being molten. They are also extensively used in the production of exhaust heat shields for various car companies in the USA.
Curabond adhesives also exhibit excellent bonding properties to a wide variety of substrates including fibreglass.
