Our high-performance epoxy and polyurethane structural adhesives are well-suited for bonding high-strength sandwich panels used to manufacture recreation vehicles, trucks and trailers. Adhesive bonding is one of the most versatile technologies available to bus, truck and rail manufacturers because today’s broad spectrum of adhesives provide for the secure assembly of many substrates and substrate combinations.

Bonded assemblies prevent the distortion that can occur with mechanical fastening and offer excellent stress distribution and fatigue resistance. Resulting bonded panels are cosmetically attractive, without substrate “print through”.  The walls, sidewalls and other bonded components are impact resistant, feature reduced noise and vibration, and can withstand exposure to temperature and weather extremes as well as ultra-violet light.  In addition, epoxy, polyurethane and MMA adhesives are designed to be used with many different processing technologies - from roll coating to bead/spray/spatter application, as well as manual methods.
