Adhesives for Automotive Applications by DELO
Each car built today contains over 15Kgs of adhesive. While the majority of these are used as structural adhesives in the frame of the car, specialist adhesive applications include steering and braking sensors, air-bag sensors, driver aids such as rear & side-viewing cameras, and magnet-bonding for automatic transmissions.
Airbag Sensor Sealing
Airbag Sensors need to be sealed and because of the large volumes manufactured, a fast-curing adhesive is required.
For temperature sensitive component assembly, light-activated DELO KATIOBOND epoxy adhesives are the ideal solution.
DELO’s family of modified-epoxy mCD adhesives offers significant benefits of low curing temperatures at fast curing speeds.
DELO’s high-reliability adhesives provide maximum protection for delicate sensors used in a variety of automotive applications.
Sensor applications in cars are used to monitor such things as position, speed, tyre pressure, fill-level, to name just a few.
Electric Motor Assembly
Electric motors are becoming more common in automotive applications, being used not just to power the car but also for window regulators and seat adjusters.
Using a silicone adhesive to seal a microswitch ensures that stringent automotive standards are achieved.
Optical Sensor Bonding
Bonding a black PBT-packaged sensor onto a black thermoplastic housing is achieved with pre-activated DELO KATIOBOND adhesives.
