Structural bonding tapes, structural adhesives and automotive attachment tapes, to name a few, help solve for a wide range of challenges in bonding and in overall production efficiency. And our decades of research and development in adhesive technologies inform the latest formulations for paint systems, composites, plastics, glass and many more new and dissimilar surfaces for the vehicles of the future.
