Openair® plasma activation for reliable structural bonding in vehicle manufacturing, without using environmentally damaging primers

Today’s vehicle superstructures are assembled using adhesive bonding throughout to ensure greater inherent strength and improved durability of joints, with lower production costs. The vehicle manufacturing industry is now one of the largest consumers of structural adhesives. This means the demands put on structural bonding are high and they will only be met with reliable and reproducible pretreatments.
In truck manufacturing, Openair® Plasma treatment for surface activation successfully replaces conventional pretreatment such as mechanical roughening and activation with environmentally damaging primers.
