Exterior trim adhesiveS
An innovative range of trim adhesives for automotive exteriors
Whether you are bonding exterior trim, ornaments or emblems, our adhesives provide a range of safe, efficient and fast solutions.
Designed to react with ambient moisture to create a long-lasting and firm bond, our silane-modified polymer (SMP) and polyurethane (PU) adhesives represent the cutting edge of automotive bonding technology.
From body panel bonding to windscreen setting, our adhesives are revolutionising the assembly of modern vehicles. If you would like to find out more about how we can change the way your assembly line works, contact our technical team directly.
Our exterior trim adhesives allow for the quick and efficient processing of all automotive assembly fixtures. Delayed cure times in our SMP technology enable easier repositioning and handling of components, while still maintaining impressive bond strength for a wide variety of substrates.
Conversely, our PU adhesive demonstrates excellent green strength and quick tack at application for faster assembly. This adhesive performs particularly well in creep and environmental testing, helping you meet OEM technical approval specifications.
Applications: exterior trim piece bonding
The decorative logo depicting the brand of car typically located on the front or rear of the vehicle.
Chrome treatments and accents
Cars with chrome treatments, primarily around the edges of the glass, are often assembled with Bostik adhesives.
Bostik SMP adhesives provide a weather seal around the location where the aerial is bonded, preventing water leakage.
Quarterlight window assembly modules
The quarterlights on vehicles are often pre-assembled prior to installation with gaskets, attachments, and plastic moulding. Bostik SMP is able to bond these components together while reducing the amount of processing time and equipment required by other adhesives.
