SikaPower®

EPOXY HYBRIDS FOR LIGHTWEIGHT BONDING SOLUTIONS

SikaPower® adhesives are one and two-component, epoxy based hybrids, cured either by the temperature influence of electro-coat or powder coat ovens or for added application flexibility by ambient cure. The SikaPower® product portfolio includes crash durable, structural, weld-thru, paintable, powder coatable, e-coatable adhesives and sealants. SikaPower® adhesives are  available with or without glass spheres (beads).  

The bonding of oily substrates (standard anti-corrosion treatment and deep drawing oils, approx. 3 g/m2) is possible because of the oil uptake during the high (302F/150C minimum) heat curing process for one-component products; this is an essential material behavior for good adhesion to these substrates. Common substrates in body shop applications for SikaPower® adhesives include all types of steel, aluminum, e-coated metals, and some carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), and combinations of these substrates, in mixed material bonding.adhesives include all types of steel, aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), and combinations of these substrates, in mixed material bonding.

SikaPower®-1200

SikaPower® -1200 is a tough, high strength, solvent free, thixotropic, fast curing epoxy adhesive.   It has been designed for fast assembly bonding.

SikaPower®-4508

SikaPower® -4508 is a one component, heat-curing adhesive and sealant based on flexibilized epoxy resin. As a sealant, it is especially designed for sealing on E-coated surfaces prior to a paint or powder-coating process.

SikaPower®-4588

SikaPower® -4588 is a one-part, thixotropic, warm applied, structural heat curing adhesive based on epoxy and polyurethane chemistry. SikaPower® -4588 is designed for sheet metal assembly work in the body shop and is cured with heat (e.g. in the e-coat oven).
