Multi-Functional Problem Solvers

Adhesives, and their specifically utilised counterparts, namely insulating, sealing, foam and encapsulation materials, are indispensable in modern production and assembly technology. Multi-functional solutions can be implemented by combining adhesive and/or insulation/sealing functions, as well as through the combination of clinging/adhesion between one or more of the parts to be joined. Components and modules which are bonded (insulated, sealed, foamed, encapsulated) over a portion of their surfaces, and to an even greater extent when bonded over their entire surfaces, often demonstrate extreme characteristics which can otherwise only be achieved by means of extensive mechanical effort. Combined with mechanical or thermal joining/fastening processes, the range of applications extends right on up to the production of crash-relevant automotive parts and aeronautics components which are subjected to extreme stressing.
