Car trunks have come a long way and today they carry much more than luggage. The trunk is used for many different things depending on the purpose and the type of the vehicle, and is exposed to higher mechanical stress compared to the other sections of the vehicle. The interior lining is joined with adhesives which meet the requirements permanently and reliably.
In automotive manufacturing, car trunks have numerous different applications which require innovative adhesive solutions: from the bonding of floors and the side lining to the lamination of trunks covers in station wagons. Jowat adhesives are reliable and flexible partners in this section of the vehicle as well.
Trunk floors made from carpet and insulation fleece are bonded with thermoplastic hot melt adhesives. Superior floors are manufactured from GMPU boards (polyurethane honeycombed boards reinforced with glass fibre) in different geometries laminated with carpets using polyurethane adhesives which can easily resist the high restoring forces of the material in edgefolding applications. All adhesives are suitable for inline as well as for semi-manual production processes and the heat resistance of these products has been for direct sun exposure.
The products listed only represent a limited selection of the available product portfolio. Product availability might differ by region. The technical data, characteristics and field of application provided in the table outline the differences between the individual adhesives of the product portfolio. Our Application Technology Department and our Sales Representatives are on hand to provide advice and support you finding the best adhesive for your particular application.
