Adhesives for the assembly of retainers

Some complex constellations can only be safely attached to each other with clips or retainers. We offer a wide range of special automotive adhesive systems for such cases, using intelligent application technology that meets the most stringent bonding quality requirements. The higher the required degree of automation, the more reliable the adhesive system must be during processing. Our many decades of intensive R&D activities have led to state-of-the-art adhesive products for retainers that often surpass the high specifications of the automotive industry.

Applications

Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers use retainers to assemble all kinds of parts in a safe, fast and uncomplicated process. In production lines, gluing robots often handle these tasks. KLEIBERIT offers a range of special reactive PUR and POR hotmelts for such applications. Some common uses of clips and retainers that can be bonded with our adhesive systems are:

  • fixing arm rests
  • mounting seat shells
  • mounting roof linings
  • car boot linings
  • and various other vehicle interior linings

We have a selection of adhesive systems for use in vehicle interiors and the matching expertise. Benefit from our decades of experience in industrial manufacturing and let us help you optimize your production process.

Material combinations

As retainers can be attached to a number of different materials, the adhesive used must be easy to apply and have high resistance properties.

Retainer materials:

ABS
ABS/PC
PP

Carrier materials:

various fibre composites
ABS/PC

Almost all kinds of material combinations can be glued with the right adhesive and the right application technology. We will be happy to help you find the right adhesive(s) to suit your individual needs. Let us advise you.

Process requirements

A carefully coordinated processing system is the key to success: adhesives with short open times and high initial bonding strength enable direct further processing, and using gluing robots for automated application helps to optimize workflows.

Requirements of the finished component

An adhesive bond must be made to last ... for the entire lifecycle of the vehicle! Weather extremes, direct sunlight, vibrations and static loads must not have any negative impact on the bonding, regardless of the materials used. Adhesives used in vehicles must have the following properties:

  • short open times for short cycle times
  • high initial strength, e.g. for complex edge wrapping applications
  • permanent resistance to heat, cold, moisture, mechanical wear and tear
  • low emissions (VOC, fogging, odours)
  • high impact resistance (airbag release)

Benefit from our know-how. Our engineers have decades of experience with industry-standard equipment and application methods. Together with our customers, we are constantly developing new adhesives and application technologies.

Requirements of the adhesive

Retainers are generally attached to relatively small surfaces, but have to withstand huge mechanical forces. Under no circumstances may a retainer come undone if an airbag is triggered, for instance. The bond must be durable and absolutely reliable at all times. Different temperatures and seasonal weather conditions must also not affect the adhesive quality in any way.

Cars are sold to all corners of the world. Adhesive bonds in vehicles must therefore reliably and permanently withstand different climates as well as the vibrations of everyday driving. KLEIBERIT offers a range of special reactive PUR- and POR-based hotmelts for such purposes.
