BETAMATE™ Structural Adhesives


BETAMATE™ structural adhesives deliver cutting-edge solutions in similar and dissimilar material bonding, closure bonding, and body structure bonding, enabling improved load carrying capabilities, vehicle stiffness and durability, design flexibility, and weight reduction. BETAMATE™ structural adhesives offer high-performance adhesion to automotive substrates such steel, aluminum, magnesium, and composites, innovatively replacing welds and mechanical fasteners, reducing fatigue and failure commonly encountered with traditional processes – substantially increasing manufacturing efficiencies.

Uses:

  • Door
  • Hood
  • Deck lid flanges
  • Engine compartments
  • Cockpits
  • Roof panels
  • Rails
  • Trailer flooring and other load-bearing members

Advantages:

  • Contributes to lightweight design flexibility and safety
  • Joins multi-material and hard-to-weld substrates, including high-strength steel, aluminum and magnesium
  • Improves durability by reducing fatigue and failure commonly found around spot welds and fasteners
  • Seals against environmental conditions that cause corrosion
  • Provides potential to lower cost by reducing welds and gauge without losing mechanical properties
  • Lab and full-vehicle testing of new crash-resistant structural adhesives show improved crash-resistant performance without any weight increase
