Low-emission PU adhesives for repairing plastic automotive components

[image_0]More and more automotive components - from bumpers, fenders and spoilers to the fuel flap - are made from plastics of every kind. If these components crack or break, then a dependable adhesive is required. Henkel has now rounded off its portfolio of adhesives for repairing plastic parts with a duo of two-component polyurethane-based products with low emission values. Mixing the two-component adhesives is easy thanks to a special mixing nozzle that is used to apply them. The two components are mixed automatically in the nozzle, ensuring the optimal quality of the adhesive during application. Teroson PU 9225 SF ME can be used to repair all plastic parts on the vehicle exterior. The product has a pot life of two minutes, is applied at room temperature and subsequently cured using an infrared heat source at 60 to 70 °C. The repair can be sanded with ease and, with the additional use of the Terokal 150 bonding agent, can also be painted without any difficulty.[image_1_right] Teroson PU 6700 ME is ideal for bonding different materials. The product can be used for metal, wood and most plastics and on painted surfaces. The adhesive cures in around ten minutes, regardless of the ambient temperature and the humidity level. The new polyurethane-based adhesives offer good health and safety attributes, says Henkel. They have no special storage requirements as they do not carry any special risk phrases (R40-free). Both adhesives are available in packs of twin 25 ml cartridges (50 ml). A technical data sheet including a detailed description of how the products should be applied is available.
