Keeping Pace with Innovations in the Automotive Assembly Adhesives Marketplace

The automotive assembly adhesives market has grown in the breadth of applications and types of adhesive products and their application.
It is increasingly important to select the best adhesive for each automotive application, and Weatherstrip coatings for the automotive industry help improve the performance of elastomeric seals and substrates used on passenger and commercial vehicles, thereby ensuring a quiet and dry ride for passengers inside the vehicles.

These coatings are formulated to withstand a variety of environmental challenges and stresses inherit to the vehicle marketplace, such as weathering, heating, fluids and abrasive environments. Weatherstrip coatings are designed to lower the coefficient of friction between the elastomer and glass and painted metal to improve slip and anti-static characteristics, commonly referred to as “squeak and itch” factors.
