Increased Product Quality

Click below on any of the seven advantages to learn more. For each advantage, examples of adhesives and sealants in real life are presented, organized by major Market and Application Area. Below you will find specific examples of where adhesives and sealants are used. (You can click again on each advantage to roll the detailed information back up.)

Facilitates tight bonds between close fitting surfaces; avoids unwanted visible joint lines


Market: Packaging
Application Area: Film and Foil Laminations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Consumer Goods Packaging - Protection Foils and Foil Lamination

Eliminates heat induced metal weakening associated with welding


Eliminates damage to painted/laminated surfaces


Market: Transporation
Application Area: Vehicle Assemby

Specific Applications Include:

  • Automotive Body Repair


Market: Transporation
Application Area: Rail

Specific Applications Include:

  • Railcar Panels

Eliminates distortion or discoloration of parts caused by thermal joining methods


Market: Assembly (Rigid)
Application Area: Appliances

Specific Applications Include:

  • Stainless Steel Door Assembly


Market: Packaging
Application Area: Flexible Packagin

Specific Applications Include:

  • Cold Seal Adhesives for Food Packaging

Hermetically seals against moisture, salts, UV light and other environmental conditions


Market: Assembly (Rigid)
Application Area: Machinery

Specific Applications Include:

  • Stainless Steel Door Assembly


Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention (based on gaskets), which tended to be less resistent to rain, snow and other environmental factors.


Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Window Assembly

Specific Applications Include:

  • Manufacturing of Insulating Glass Units


Market: Transporation
Application Area: Vehicle Assemby

Specific Applications Include:

  • Automotive Windshield Bonding

Provides sound and vibration dampening


Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:


Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Building Envelope

Specific Applications Include:

  • Adhesives reduce the sound transfer in buildings between the individual floors.

Market: Transporation
Application Area: Vehicle Assemby

Specific Applications Include:

  • Adhesives, which bond cured-in-place rubber gaskets to metal, reduce wind noise, making for a quieter ride
  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention (based on gaskets), which were less effective at sealing out noise and vibration.

Reduces stress concentration associated with screw/rivet holes


Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention which tended to create localized stress points attirbuted to screw holes.
Market: Transporation
Application Area: Vehicle Assemby

Specific Applications Include:

  • Bonding of Edge Profiles in Truck Assembly
