Sika to Present Car Body Bonding Solutions at AEE

Published on 2015-05-22. Author : SpecialChem

Sika will feature its innovative car body bonding solutions at the Automotive Engineering Expo (AEE) 2015, being held June 9 to 10, 2015 at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, Nuremberg, Germany.

The continuing challenges of car body lightweighting are being solved by the use of high strength steel, aluminum, magnesium and other non-traditional materials such as carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). Working in parallel, new material joining products and systems must be developed to enable the use of these materials in vehicles. Sika has been the innovation partner for automotive OEMs in developing these solutions for car body engineering, including SikaPower® and Sikaflex® adhesive products and SikaReinforcer® structural inserts.

Sika will be featuring its latest innovations in car body lightweighting at Stand 7A-326, located in Hall 7A. Highlights include Sikaflex® Ultra High Modulus one-component PUR for structural and crash resistant bonding of mixed material, in particular for bonding CFRP to aluminum; as well as Sikaflex® Ultra Low Modulus one-component PUR for roof panel stiffening and damping. The exhibit will also detail the success behind the current VW e-Golf where Sika’s High Strength Bonding solution, using SikaPower® adhesive and SikaReinforcer® structural inserts, was engineered and implemented to enable a weight saving of more than 2.5 kg per vehicle while still fulfilling the most demanding crash requirements.

AEE is trade exhibition that shows trends, innovations, products and services for the entire process chain of painted car body – from concept to final assembly -all concentrated in one place. Experts from automotive manufacturers and automotive system suppliers meet for an exchange of views on car body development, painting and assembly. The focus at AEE 2015 is “Flexible multi-material use across the entire process chain”.
