“Making products with a lower environmental impact without sacrificing performance is a proud achievement,” said Dr. Stefan Dehnicke, Global Technology Manager - Specialty Adhesives at Dow Automotive. “A 75 percent water-based formulation allows the possibility for new optimized manufacturing footprints with no atmospheric pollution. This accomplishment sets a new standard in rubber-to-metal bonding, including dynamically challenging applications.”
MEGUM™ water-based bonding agents are available as both primer and cover products that can be used together or separately. Product advantages include:
