Sika’s unique Structural Elastic Powerflex Adhesives

New design concepts require different ways of thinking when assessing adhesive performance for bonding of lightweight structures mostly involving composites and/or metal structures. While high structural strength is a key requirement for an optimal load transfer, most structural adhesives available in the market do not meet elastic requirements to either compensate for different thermal expansion rates of mixed-material bonding or withstand high impacts or torsion even at very low temperatures.

SikaForce® Powerflex adhesives provide very stable mechanical performance throughout the service temperature range, making them safe for use in any climate condition. They provide a higher rate of stiffness at elevated temperatures (up to 100°C) whilst keeping a significant elasticity rate down to -40°C. This combination is truly unique and represents a paradigm shift.
