Structural adhesives for roof, floor and body parts and other automotive components

Compared to welded and mechanical bonds the structural adhesives from the product portfolio of Bodo Möller Chemie South Africa optimize life, structural integrity as well as acoustic management in cars and vehicle construction.


Benefits at a glance:

  • Bonding of various materials
  • Ability of expansion and contraction of gaps
  • To improve the rigidity of the body
  • Reduction of vehicle weight
  • Streamlined production
  • Reduced production time

 

 

Products:

 

BETALINK™, Structural adhesive, 1K and 2K
Advantages:

  • Acoustic and thermal management
  • Road noise and engine noise absorbing
  • Vehicle protection against dirt, dust, moisture and vapors
  • Less weight compared to conventional materials
  • Recoatable for an optimal finish
  • Compatible with many substrates
  • K1 has a very good adhesion on many materials without primers and a TÜV certificate
  • K2 can also be used at lower temperatures in the outer region

Applications:

  • Aluminium roof sheets, Painted aluminum trim
  • Composite or aluminum side plates
  • Trunks, Flooring / Carpets
  • Attachments and spoiler adhesive
  • Plastic bonding

BETAFORCE™, 2K, Structural and high-modulus adhesive for lightweight composite materials
Advantages:

  • Fast strength development
  • Excellent mechanical behavior
  • A combination of high modulus and high elongation at break
  • Very good stability of adhesive beads
  • Reducing and avoiding rivets, bolts or mechanical fasteners

Applications:

  • High adhesion to metal and non-metallic substrates
  • Structural: cab, roof modules
  • Lightweight materials: carbon fiber, PC, glass, aluminum


 

BETAMATE™ Epoxy structural adhesive, 1K (oven cure) and 2 K (room temperature cure)
Advantages:

  • Reduce fatigue and failure for welds and mechanical connections
  • Waterproofing and protection in corrosive environments
  • Less vibration by stiffening the entire vehicle structure, thereby also improved acoustics
  • Connection of different substrates

Applications:

  • Roof, metal and floor bonding
  • Edge protection
  • Replacement and / or reinforcing of welds in the cabin, cockpit and roof sheets, reinforcement of beams and other supporting components in cars
  • Direct headliner bonding
  • Aftermarket

BETAMATE ™ 2096 Epoxy, 2K
Advantages:

  • Excellent adhesion to automotive steels, including coated steels and prepared aluminum
  • Helps to increase or restore the rigidity and crash stability of the vehicle
  • High resistance of the adhesive and bonding
  • Suitable for sealing and thus protects both the metal and welds from corrosion
  • Combatible with other thermal and mechanical joining processes

Applications:

  • Developed specifically for use as a repair adhesive
  • The adhesive is applied to increase the durability, the crash stability of the vehicle and the stiffness
