Windshield adhesive solutions for OEM and aftermarket applications

Bonding glass or other windshield material to a motor vehicle's body requires strength and flexibility from an adhesive – whether that’s on an assembly line or a garage workshop.

Our windshield bonding products provide greater reliability and durability on the assembly line. Additionally, by using our SMP adhesives, you can make significant cost-in-use savings compared to other technologies. 

For aftermarket applications, Bostik adhesives have been favored by OEMs of high-end sports cars for several years. Our adhesives meet the stringent requirements of the aftermarket and provide a range of drive away times to best suit your needs.  

Windshield adhesive: technologies

Silyl modified polymers (SMP)

An easy-to-apply, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly range of windscreen adhesives.  

Bostik SMP adhesives are the smart choice for windscreen bonding, offering improved efficiency and exceptional performance. 

Our SMP products can be used without primers, meaning they reduce production time and costs by minimizing substrate preparation. 

As well as primerless adhesion, our SMP systems boast high green strength, allowing movement shortly after windshield installation. Plus their solvent-free and isocyanate-free formulations contain little to no VOCs.

Dual SMP 

In addition to one-part SMP formulations, we offer a two-component system. Bostik dual SMP technology further increases the processing speed of application and cure. 

An impressive 75% of the shear strength of our dual SMP adhesive is reached after just 24 hours, giving unsurpassed green strength. This accelerated cure rate reduces clamp time significantly - from 4 hours to 30 minutes, in some cases.

For ease of application, we've developed a dual SMP gun. This patented tool mixes both SMP components consistently and uniformly, accelerating the production process.
