Freedom of Design
Bonded glass and windshields not only results in elegant surfaces for optimal aerodynamics but also increases the overall stiffness of the vehicle. Car manufacturers have implemented windshields as structural parts to vehicle design already in the 1970ies. Most modern buses are built with bonded glass, too.
Weathering Performance and Durability
Sika's All-in-One windshield sealant solutions for use as glass adhesive and exterior joint sealing allow the use of one product for bonding and gap filling applications. Reducing the number of products in production reduces mistakes and inventory costs.
Sustainable use of adhesives
Solvent-free adhesion promoters, primers, and adhesives reduce VOC emissions to a minimum. Reducing not only the environmental impact but also vehicle interior contamination. Workspace for the primer application in production can operate without ventilation.
More Efficient Adhesive Bonding Process
Sika offers warm-applied polyurethane adhesives for automated windshield installation. With SikaBooster® and PowerCure accelerated windshield adhesives, not only ensure complete curing of large joints. They also reach handling strength quicker. In repair applications, these technologies enable the shortest Safe Drive-Away Time.
