5 Ways Leather Seating Adhesives Reduce Your Overall Cost
As you likely know, automotive interiors play a key role in consumer purchasing decisions. Seating in particular is especially important, given its need to keep occupants both safe and comfortable. Additionally, consumers often prefer materials, such as leather, that convey luxury and increase aesthetics while improving overall interior durability. Fortunately, when using leather materials alongside the right adhesive technology, it can make it easy to address seating demands while reducing costs overall. Take a look at these five ways and consider how the right leather seating adhesives can help your manufacturing processes and end-use upholstery.
#1: Moderate Heat ActivationRequiring only moderate heat activation temperature, the right leather seating adhesives aid in companies’ energy efficiency efforts. For example, a higher activation temperature would require machines to produce greater heat, which uses more energy. The right adhesives, however, help keep energy operating costs low.
#2 Fast Set SpeedOffering a fast set speed, these adhesives help keep production lines moving quickly and efficiently. Additionally, they are easy to apply, boosting operational efficiencies. As a result, they are able to keep downtime and labor costs to a minimum.
#3 VersatilityIdeal for leather seating applications, the right adhesives can bond to a wide variety of fabrics, foams and vinyls. This means that companies need only one adhesive to meet their leather upholstery assembly needs, keeping SKUs and associated plant storage space costs to a minimum.
#4 Less WasteThe right leather seating adhesives can be manufactured into any needed shape or size. This customization helps decrease plant waste. In addition to improving a company’s carbon footprint, it also lowers overall cost on waste clean up.
#5 Additional FunctionalityThe right leather seating adhesives can be manufactured with additional functionality, such as flame retardancy. By using an adhesive with this capability formulated directly within it, manufacturers do not need to spend time or money adding in extra products. -- Bostik manufactures the right leather seating adhesives based on web technology.
