Henkel introduces two interior adhesive technologies for passenger vehicles

ABR Staff Writer Published 12 May 2016

Henkel Adhesive Technologies has introduced two interior adhesive technologies for passenger vehicles, during the Ward's Auto Interiors Conference, at Cobo Center.

AQUENCE PL 5101 is a one-component, waterborne laminating adhesive, that simplifies production by eliminating the need to mix components, while curing on- command through heat activation.

TECHNOMELT AS 8383, a non-reactive APAO hot melt, offers multi-functional application capabilities, with effectiveness on various substrates, including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and polypropylene.

Henkel Adhesive Technologies in North America Transport and Metal business development manager Barb Wehrle said: "The adhesive technologies that support development of today's world-class interiors must overcome significant challenges faced by the engineering community.

"Efficient open times, on-command bonding, thinner bead volume and cross-functional application capabilities, are key to success."

AQUENCE PL 5101 can be sprayed, roll coated or brushed for use as a laminate in association with instrument panels, side door panels and consoles.

TECHNOMELT AS 8383 maintains its effectiveness at temperatures up to 100 degrees Celsius with a hanging weight of up to 500 grams and is used for multiple vehicle applications, including headliner attachments, wiring, carpet and acoustic pads and foams.
