Can we bond aluminium to the elastosol adhesives range?

Elastosol is perfectly suited for lightweight material bonding, such as aluminium. It can be used in hem flanges, typically for door, hood or trunk hems. Beneficial properties of Bostik Elastosol products include an excellent corrosion protection, very high wash-out resistance and the choice for application in bead or swirl pattern.

What is Bostik's position on sustainability for body in white application?

At Bostik we want to ensure that automotive designers and product engineers are able to minimize the environmental impact during the manufacturing process.

Bostik’s Elastosol adhesives enhance worker safety with BPA-, chlorine-, solvent-, PVC-, epoxy-free formulations and enable a lowered HSE impact. Elastosol adhesives do not give rise to corrosive or harmful fumes when being welded through. Furthermore, usage of Elastosol can lead to need for less welding points per meter of substrate, saving production cost.

What is the curing mechanism for elastosol?

The Elastosol range of BiW products is designed to cure during the automotive e-coat process. Hence the products are heat-curing. (Typically 180°C, 30 minutes dwell-time)
