Headlight bonding for railcar manufacturers: adhesive technologies

Our headlight bonding adhesives for railway rolling stock demonstrate an impressive range of characteristics, helping you find the ideal adhesive for the job. 

In contrast to the polyurethane products offered by many adhesive manufacturers, our headlight bonding and sealing solutions utilize innovative silyl modified polymer (SMP) chemistries. 

Our SMP RTV sealants and RTV adhesives are primerless on most substrates and possess excellent UV resistance and easy workability. In addition, they are environmentally-friendly, sandable, paintable and moisture resistant, making SMP adhesives a smart choice for railway stock headlight bonding and sealing, as well as many other applications in railcar assembly.

These flexible adhesives strike the perfect balance, providing the weather seals to protect against water as well as the flexibility and strength needed to meet the growth and expansion demands of temperature swings and flexing panels.
