Features and Benefits

For high-performance bonding in lightweight multi-material vehicles, BETAFORCE® composite bonding adhesive enables significant weight reduction, acoustic performance and corrosion protection. Advantages of BETAFORCE® composite bonding adhesives include:

  • Good adhesion to plastics, composites, painted, and coated metal surfaces
  • Accelerated adhesion at elevated temperatures (e.g. induction)
  • High mechanical strength and elongation at break
  • Very long open time allows bonding of large parts
  • Integrates unique properties like high modulus, high strength, and optimized elongation in one system
  • Provides industry-leading retention of mechanical properties over a wide temperature range
  • Ideal for dissimilar material bonding where differences are expected in the thermal expansion of structural materials
  • Cold or warm processable
  • High viscosity, high modulus roof bonding adhesive can be used primerless on paint.
  • Battery components
  • Claddings
  • Composite
  • Doors
  • Front-end carriers
  • Liftgates
  • Spoilers
  • Structural roof modules
  • Sunroofs
  • Trunks
