Work trucks and trailers need to be built to withstand rigorous usage. Your quest for strength and durability can be achieved in a way that also reduces manufacturing costs, while producing trucks and trailers that are more visually appealing.
LOCTITE® adhesives and sealants can help you cut manufacturing costs, while reducing the need for welds, rivets, and screws, resulting in a tougher, more aesthetically pleasing vehicle.
The Benefits of Structural Adhesives Over Traditional Fastening Methods
Additional uses for adhesives and sealants include:
- Bonding sub-floors to frames
- Bonding aluminum tread plates to side panels
- Roof panel to bow bonding
- Trim and floor sealing
Why Adhesives over Welding or Brazing?
By replacing your current thermal joining methods with structural adhesives from LOCTITE, you’ll be able to join dissimilar substrates, avoid potential part distortion that can affect performance, and minimize (or eliminate) steps like grinding and polishing. And without the seams and discoloration that result from welding, you’ll also get a better-looking truck.
