Traditional reliance on mechanical fasteners in automotive assembly is evolving, thanks to innovations in paint systems like scratch-resistant and carbamate clear coats. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) face new challenges in achieving surface adhesion due to these advancements.
Transportation and automotive design engineers are on the lookout for high-performance adhesive tapes that can meet the demands of modern clear-coat paint finishes and low surface energy (LSE) plastics. The complexity arises from the need for a delicate balance of peel and shear performance across diverse environmental conditions, as specified by OEMs.
Enter Saint-Gobain with its groundbreaking range of primerless acrylic tapes. These tapes offer a solution to attach LSE components to challenging automotive clear coats without the necessity for additional primer treatment. This marks a significant shift towards more efficient and streamlined adhesive solutions in the automotive and transportation industry.
