New Range of Water-based Adhesives for Vehicles
Techsil has announced to launch a new range of high performance, water-based 1 and 2 part adhesives. The adhesives are specifically engineered to bond PVC flooring, most plastics, wood, leather and synthetic leather, textiles, cotton fibers and wood fibers.

Solvent-based Adhesive to Water-based Adhesive

Vehicle manufacturers are investigating using lightweight materials as one approach to reducing emissions. Plastics and reinforced composites are increasingly being used to make components throughout the vehicle but the bonding difficulties associated with these materials can cause a real headache for manufacturers. Traditional mechanical fasteners have the disadvantage of adding weight so engineers have been turning to adhesives to join these substrates together. However, one drawback is that the adhesives needed to provide a strong reliable bond to plastics are solvent-based and these solvents pose real hazards to humans and the environment making them less welcome in manufacturing.

Consequently there is a push towards using water-based adhesives that do not contain these harmful substances. In the past it was difficult to achieve durable bonds without an adhesion promoting solvent.

These solvent-free adhesives are ideal for vehicle interiors in applications such as flooring, door panels and inserts, insulation materials and leather/vinyl wrapping.

The features of this new range include

  • High adhesive strength
  • Engineered to bond many diverse substrates
  • Solvent free; non-hazardous and non-flammable
  • High heat and climate resistance (-40⁰C to +140⁰C)
  • Application by spray, roller or manually

Water-based Adhesives Meet Demanding standards of Modern Vehicles

These water-based adhesives can be relied upon to meet the demanding standards of modern vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, trains, trams, caravans and motorhomes and can be used for the following applications:
  • Vehicle flooring
  • Insulation materials
  • Leather & vinyl wrapping
  • Door panels
  • Door inserts
