Sika Corporation has introduced SikaPower-4508, a heat curing paint shop adhesive and sealant to the US market.
SikaPower-4508 is a cold applied, one-component, heat curing adhesive and sealant based on flexibilized epoxy resin. As a sealant, it is especially designed for sealing on e-coated surfaces prior to a paint or powder-coat process. SikaPower-4508 adheres well to most e-coated and oily metal substrates and can be used in combination with spot welding, riveting, clinching and other mechanical fastening techniques to fix parts until the curing process is completed.
“SikaPower-technology has been used for many years in automotive assembly processes” said Mark Daniels, vice president, Industry Transportation and Appliance and Components. “We are excited to bring this same technology to our partners in transportation and industrial assembly applications.”
The SikaPower portfolio includes a wide range of epoxy based adhesives ranging from heat cure sealants to high strength structural adhesives to flexibilized crash resistance adhesives. SikaPower-4508 is offered in 600 ml unipacs in white.
