Decreasing weight, increasing safety and comfort starts at the construction of your car.
In the automotive industry, the use of adhesives has continuously increased in the last few decades. There are many reasons to use adhesives in this industry, but one of the main reasons is the path towards lightweight vehicles. Threaded fasteners and welds are being replaced with adhesives to reduce weight. Initially there was a preference for thermosetting polymers, however recently we see that the use of thermoplastic adhesives is progressively increasing.
Dakota offers a wide range of products that are based on polyethylene, polyolefin or mixtures, ethylene vinyl acetates, co-polyamides, polyurethanes and co-polyesters. The choice of the adhesive is made depending on the desired performance.
