Composite Bonding for Lightweight Multimaterial Components
Enabling bonding strength and reliability for multi-material vehicles, two-component BETAFORCE™ and BETAMATE™ structural bonding adhesives are proven solutions for lighter weight vehicles that utilize composites.
Based on a novel polymer technology that allows for consistent mechanical properties over an extremely wide temperature range, these adhesives feature a unique combination of material properties that make them an ideal choice for joining composites and other materials in a variety of lightweight design areas.
BETAFORCE and BETAMATE adhesives can be used to bond coated metals like steel to aluminum, carbon fiber panels to steel or aluminum, sheet molding compound (SMC) to aluminum and more.
They are particularly suited for use in:
- Composite panels
- Front-end carriers
- Structural roof modules
