What are our most popular Automotive Adhesive & Sealants products?
Threadlocker Automotive application
Threadlockers– Are a single component liquid adhesive, that is designed to remain liquid until isolated from oxgen in the presence of metals ions, such as iron or copper. As a result, the adhesives creates a strong bond, preventing any traction of the threads.
Threadlockers are commonly used for automotive applications such as:
Preventing loosening, leaks and corrosion in automotive materials
Can be used to replace locks, washers, split pins nuts and wiring
Polyurethane Sealants– Polyurethane Sealants are manufactured through the reaction of glycol and an isocyanate.
Polyurethane Sealants used in the Automotive Industry
Polyurethane Sealants are a pure compound that displays excellent moisture qualities and corrosion resistance characteristics.
They are commonly used in automotive applications such as:
Side glass installing
Car body structural bonding and sealing
Silicone Sealant – Silicone Sealants are a special type of fielded molded sealer that consists mainly of silicone. They are composed of long polymer chains of curing agents, and combines with oxygen to form a strand of long length after the sealant has cured, ensuring the sealant is resistant to UV radiation.
Silicone Sealants are often used in automotive applications such as:
Prevents rattles and squeaks, and eliminates noise and vibration
Improves system sealing and gasket durability
Resists varying and harsh environments
Structural Adhesives– provide tough, durable bonds to a variety of surfaces. Structural Adhesives are two part resins, that can be mixed or activated, to cure and form an impact resistant plastic film, that essentially adheres to the surfaces of the substrates.
Structural Adhesives used in the automotive industry
Structural Adhesives are commonly used for the following automotive applications:
Reducing fatigue and failure in spot welds & fasteners
Bonded Seat Structures
Magnesium Suspension Struts
Cast aluminium to profile bonding
Aluminium or composite roof bonding
Epoxy Resin used in the Automotive Industry
Epoxy Resin– Action Adhesives supply Permabond’s epoxy resins adhesives that are commonly used for automotive applications. Permabonds automotive applications are also manufactured to offer high performance for bonding most engineering materials. They are available in both single part epoxies and two part epoxies, and are used for automotive applications such as:
Protective coatings for vehicles
Reducing the weight of the finishing parts, lowering fuel consumption and emissions
Bonding handles onto tools
Cyanoacrylate Adhesives– Are single component moisture curing adhesives that cure quickly to form a tough, durable, and high performance bond. Its main ingredient is an acrylic resin cyanoacrylate, and works effectively by being triggered by hydroxol’s ions in water. As almost all substrates have traces of water on its surfaces, it cures almost instantly.
Cyanoacrylate Adhesives used in the Automotive Industry
Cyanoacrylates are commonly used for the following automotive applications:
Bonding weather strips
Engine hose protectors
Our range of products includes adhesives and sealants, that are high temperature resistant and able to withstand vibration and harsh conditions. Action Adhesives also supplySprayable adhesives for interior trim and composite lamination. We also supply sealants for body and assembly operations, and engineering adhesives used for structural assembly. Our range also includes nut lock products for retaining bolts, retainers, thread sealers, and two component acrylic adhesives that are used for bonding various metals in body assembly.
We have helped numerous customers select the right adhesive or sealant for Automotive Applications across Ireland & the UK.
