Replacing metal parts, composite components can reduce component weight, improving fuel consumption and reducing CO2 emissions in all types of vehicle. Both resin transfer molding (RTM) and composite part assembly require high grade composite solutions. The best composites also ensure automotive designers and manufacturers can rely on safe and controllable processes with environmental-friendly chemistry.

Henkel composite solutions deliver the highest quality while helping to reduce weight and costs. They can also shorten cycle times and eliminate the need for pre-treatment for painting and adhesives. Suitable for automotive mass production due to short injection and curing times, our products support you across the complete RTM process and the assembly of composite parts.

Our Loctite MAX composite matrix resin solutions are specifically designed for RTM with glass or carbon fibers, enabling short cycle times suitable for automotive mass production. And for multi-substrate bonding and composite assembly, our Loctite and Teroson composite adhesive portfolio provide the ideal solution.
