Permabond Adhesives for Transportation
Planes, trains and automobiles all require adhesives for a broad range of bonding applications. In many cases, welding, brazing and mechanical fasteners are simply not suitable. Planes use many lightweight composites which cannot be welded and using bulky mechanical fasteners would add to component weight, making the use of adhesives in the aviation industry widespread. Trains and buses are adopting similar lightweight materials in a bid to increase fuel efficiency of vehicles and of course looking to similar joining techniques. Adhesives are vital for locking nuts and bolts together to prevent vibration loosening, They also help prevent parts seizing through corrosion, so if at some future stage maintenance and repair work is carried out, parts can be disassembled easily.
Permabond adhesives are specified by a number of aerospace, bus and train manufacturers worldwide, along with many of their associated maintenance and repair contractors
