The improvement of energy efficiency by reducing the weight of moving parts is now a strong global trend for the economic and ecological optimization of products in various industries, such as the transportation or wind sector. However, the use of lightweight materials calls for new structural bonding concepts and smart adhesive designs to achieve strong, durable connections with adequate flexibility to allow small movements and prevent damage to the lightweight material itself. Sika possesses all the relevant adhesive technologies and has developed specific products such as highly toughened epoxies, one- or two-component UHM polyurethanes or acrylate adhesives to master the various bonding challenges posed by composite materials and offer the best solution for the customer.
