Transport and automotive:
Methacrylate adhesives are being successfully used in the automotive and transport industry for bonding both metal and composite assemblies such as bumpers, instrument panels, spoilers, wheel arches, glove boxes, door panels, plastics headlights, tail gate, structural body parts, grille, roof assemblies, E-coated parts and other composite components.
In boat manufacturing methacrylate adhesives are widely used for Bonding of deck to hull and stringer bonding, deck liners, ski boats, internal fixtures, canoes and kayaks. They save time and provide a strong and reliable bond which is not susceptible to cracking or brittleness.
Methacrylate adhesives reduce weight and help in even stress distribution in Electric Vehicles where these are highly desired properties. Some of the key applications of methacrylate adhesives in electric vehicles include battery enclosure bonding, battery pack sealing, bonding of liner to frame.
Even though epoxies are traditionally used in a large variety of applications in wind applications, methacrylates due to their flexibility and strength are being preferred in a number of applications such like Shell bonding, Nacelle, drill and fill repair and blade accessories
Solar rooftop Installations:
Methacrylate adhesives are widely used for bonding of Aluminium brackets to roof panels for installation of solar panels. Due to non-penetrating joints, it enhances joint strength and eliminates chances of water ingress through rivet holes.
Methacrylate adhesives are used extensively for bonding in external signage and UPVC door applications, displays, anchoring and architectural components.
Other newer areas of applications of methyl methacrylate adhesives are coming up in new technology manufacturing such as Drone manufacturing, IOT, Electric Vehicles and others.
