Automation Parts: Adhesives Make Car Repair Easier

Adhesive technologies are increasingly used in the car industry and in vehicle repair shops. Adhesive bonding is replacing conventional joining techniques such as welding, riveting or bolting. This not only increases safety but also simplifies many production operations. At Automechanika 2012, carbon prepregHenkel will be presenting recent product innovations and a broad product portfolio for reliable car repair in OEM quality.

Mixing the two-component adhesives is extremely easy thanks to a special mixing nozzle that is used to apply them. The two components are mixed automatically in the nozzle, ensuring the optimal quality of the adhesive during application. Teroson PU 9225 SF ME can be used to repair all plastic parts on the vehicle exterior. The product has a pot life of two minutes, is applied at room temperature and subsequently cured using an infrared heat source at 60 to 70 degrees composite Teroson PU 6700 ME is ideal for bonding different materials. The product can be used for metal, wood and most plastics and on painted surfaces. The adhesive cures in around ten minutes, regardless of the ambient temperature and the humidity level.

The three Loctite instant adhesives are suitable for bonding almost all materials, from plastic through metal to rubber. Thanks to a special formulation, they do not irritate the skin, nor does their safety data sheet list any hazard symbols or chemical substances that pose a risk to health. In launching these improved products,composite resin Henkel is strengthening its portfolio of innovative solutions with regard to occupational health and safety. The improved formulation has higher moisture tolerance and leads to a longer lasting bond.

Terokal 5010 TR, the two-component material being unveiled by Henkel at Automechanika, is an entirely new solution for the perfect repair of body damage ? and far superior to hot soldering using tin. The product,prepreg which is sold under the Teroson brand name, has been tested by the ?Allianz Zentrum fuer Technik? with positive results.

For workshops, the use of Terokal 5010 TR offers significant time and labour savings. In contrast to working with tin, no high temperatures are required and the vehicle components do not have to be dismantled and then fitted again following the repairs. Neither is there any impact on the plastic components close to the repair, as the application and curing temperatures are no higher than if the vehicle was standing in bright sunlight.
