Dow Automotive Systems is the project partner for adhesives in the “Light-eBody“ project for bonding heterogeneous body components together; initiated and funded by the German Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, the joint research project will develop new lightweight body concepts for future electric vehicles.
Dow say that with the developing e-mobility, bonding technologies are becoming more and more important explaining that nowadays, bonding of lightweight structures have become ever more important due to the increasing use of heterogeneous materials which quite often can’t be joined in a traditional way. Thus, bonding technologies support the essential material compounding for lightweight concepts to reach a higher mileage and saving battery costs.
