Bonding Adhesive for Flawless Automotives

Developed with a team at Audi, BETAFORCE™ 9050M composite bonding adhesive for automotive mass production and multi-material substrates enables significant weight reduction and improves torsional stiffness of the vehicle.

These innovative characteristics result in:

  • Better fuel efficiency
  • Safety
  • Handling
  • Comfort
  • Carbon dioxide reduction

Good handling strength after short curing times enables short tack times which significantly improve manufacturing productivity.

Providing Economic Benefits Along with Innovative Solution

“We are honored to be recognized by the Edison Awards judges for this innovative solution,” said Scott Collick, Global Research and Development Director, DuPont Transportation & Advanced Polymers.

“BETAFORCE 9050M provides economic benefits for our customers by enabling lightweight substrates like carbon fiber to be incorporated more widely into vehicles. This then helps OEMs meet and exceed regulations. The improved fuel economy also benefits consumers.”

Frank Billotto and Tyler Auvil accepted honors on behalf of the BETAFORCE™ 9050M team at the 2019 Edison Awards. Developed with Audi, this innovative composite bonding adhesive provides weight, handling and processing advantages.
