Vehicle exterior and esthetic features

Materials used in applications for the exterior of the vehicle are exposed to harsh environmental conditions as well as other environmental impacts that can damage the vehicle. Our materials are known for their excellent durability, weatherability, and scratch resistance. Our products include acrylic resins, smart adhesives, and TPV parts. We are committed to deliver first-rate functionality, weatherability, and esthetics to next-generation vehicles.

Smart adhesives for exterior applications

Our exterior vehicle offerings include cutting-edge automotive bonding technology for a safe, efficient, and fast adhesion process.  The bonding of functional and decorative vehicle exterior parts requires long-lasting, quick adhesion for accelerated bonding operations. Bostik offers high performance Silane-modified polymer (SMP) structural adhesives and Polyurethane (PU) sealants for vehicle exterior applications. Our smart adhesive solutions enable easier handling of decorative parts components, such as emblems and aerodynamic spoilers, as well as functional parts like tailgates, direct glazing, and lighting components. We designed the following structural adhesives and sealants to be compatible with a wide range of substrates including composite materials:

  • Silane-modified polymer (SMP) technology  sealand
  • Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) 2KPU structural adhesives

We can also assist you in meeting OEM specifications.

Polyurethane CASE applications

Polyurethane is a versatile material that is ideally suited for a wide range of CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers) applications for making a wide range of automotive products. Their versatility has led to applications ranging from headlight gaskets, electronic casting parts, to paint coatings or protective coatings for truck bed liners. Siliporite® Molecular sieves powders are strong and reliable desiccants widely used in two components (2K) and can ​also perform in one-component (1K) PU CASE formulations. Our Siliporite® powders enable you to optimize formulation performance by avoiding presence of moisture, tailor the pot life, shortening return to service time, improving surface appearance and adhesion of the final product.
