Tough BIW – with Henkel

Metal stamping, body works and paint line operations benefit from Henkel‘s expertise: Because we know manufacturing floors from partnerships with vehicle brands! Our BIW range includes products for optimised corrosion protection and paint adhesion, paint shop anti-chip (underbody) coating and seam sealers, for example. We ensure that our products deliver unparalleled efficiency and flexibility, hence creating opportunities to save time and money while manufacturing.
