Clips and retainers
The Jowat adhesive portfolio also supplies PO and PUR hot melts which have been optimised for the diverse requirements in all individual bonding applications for clips and retainers in cars. The latest generation of PO hot melts are suitable for bonding clips and retainers as well as for edgefolding purposes and for flat lamination, and therefore facilitate extremely efficient manufacturing processes.
In the assembly of headlights, adhesives are used to join the lens with the housing and also take over the essential function of a sealant and protect the sophisticated technology from water. Black coloured PUR hot melts provide protection against high sun exposure.
Adhesives used in convertible tops also have to meet demanding requirements. Even after strong sun exposure and at high temperatures, the adhesive has to remain flexible and provide excellent resistance to hydrolysis. For a superior appearance and UV resistance, the high-performance PUR adhesives for convertible tops are also in black colour.
