Avery Dennison adhesive products and technical expertise can help you put your competition in the rearview mirror
Today’s increasingly widespread use of adhesives in vehicles might have been unthinkable a generation ago. But modern adhesive technology is helping to change that landscape. Today, designers have multiple adhesive options that are tailor made for a variety of vehicle applications and certified to OEM specifications.
For example, take exterior mirror bonding. As vehicles are being driven more miles than ever before (another trend that is driving engineering decisions in the industry), mirrors are subject to even more regular wear and tear; plus extended environmental, chemical, and UV exposure.
The mirror application thus requires adhesives that not only provide high tack bonding to surfaces such as glass and stainless steel, but high levels of temperature and environmental resistance. Such adhesives are now readily available, and are increasingly being used in vehicles across the world.
