- Conserving resources is a key driver in sustainable development. Lightweight composite materials can save material and energy in the production and use phase.
- Adhesives enable the bonding of dissimilar materials (e.g. steel/aluminium/plastic) to create composite materials, which combine the properties of the constituent materials while reducing weight and improving the mechanical performance.
- Crash-resistant structural adhesive solutions enable the elimination of welding points and the use of thinner metal sheets while increasing the car’s rigidity and crash resistance.
