What are our most popular Automotive Adhesive & Sealants products?


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:

  • Pumps
  • Motors
  • 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 are a pure compound that displays excellent moisture qualities and corrosion resistance characteristics.

They are commonly used in automotive applications such as:

  • Automotive interiors
  • Windshield bonding
  • 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 component failures, Reducing costly warranty repairs
  • Prevents rattles and squeaks, and eliminates noise and vibration
  • Improves system sealing and gasket durability
  • Resists varying and harsh environments

Structural Adhesives

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 are commonly used for the following automotive applications:

  • Reducing fatigue and failure in spot welds & fasteners
  • Aluminium Closures
  • Bonded Seat Structures
  • Magnesium Suspension Struts
  • Cast aluminium to profile bonding
  • Aluminium or composite roof bonding

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:

  • Manufacturing structures
  • 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.

Cyanoacrylates are commonly used for the following automotive applications:

  • Bonding weather strips
  • Engine hose protectors
  • Hose clips
  • Roof pads
  • Electronic applications

Our range of products includes adhesives and sealants, that are high temperature resistant and able to withstand vibration and harsh conditions. Action Adhesives also supply Sprayable 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.
