Adhesives for Automotive Exteriors

Master Bond offers sustainable, cost effective bonding solutions for automotive exterior applications. Our extensive line of one and two component epoxy, silicone and hybrid systems feature protection from corrosion, improved sound damping, high strength for multi-material sandwich construction and help reduce vehicle mass. Structural adhesive systems are employed in the assembly of:

  • Side View Mirrors
  • Spoilers
  • Emblems
  • Door Handles
  • Fascia
  • Tailgates
  • Sun Roofs

Products adhere well to thin sheet metal panels and are designed for weight savings/improved fuel efficiency, driver visibility/handling and long term durability. Silicone and fluorosilicone liquid sealing/gasketing compounds provide resistance to fuels, oils, automotive fluids, UV, ozone. Reliable, easy processing simplifies manufacturing and increases production speeds. Precision dispensing can be achieved manually or with automatic robotic dispensers.

Body Trim Bonding

From bonding spoilers, grilles, emblems, decals to window frames, antennas, door handles, mirrors, speaker attachment, Master Bond liquid adhesives offer cost effective solutions. Compounds have been developed that meet specific manufacturing, processing/handling requirements and adhere well to glass, rubber, plastic, metal substrates. This includes thinner metals to satisfy the need for lightweighting. Specific grades are engineered to compensate for different expansion and contraction coefficients, enhance sound damping and cure rapidly to improve cycling speed for high volume assembly.

Master Bond body trim adhesive systems can be applied manually/automatically even in confined areas and offer protection against heat, wear, wind, rain, fuel, vibration and thermal cycling. Our product line consists of flexible/rigid epoxy, cyanoacrylates and UV/visible light cure systems. Two component epoxy systems feature a long working life and cures can be accelerated with moderate heat exposure. One part optically clear cyanoacrylate adhesives exhibit high tensile/shear strength, eliminate the need for clamping/fixturing, reduce waste and securely bond close fitting parts. No mix UV/visible light cure adhesives cure in seconds, contain no solvents, have exceptional durability and allow automotive OEM and tier suppliers to join difficult to bond substrate combinations economically.
