Trailer Manufacturing

Our comprehensive range of adhesives, sealants and tapes offers the truck industry both internal and external joint design solutions for structurally bonding and sealing components when it comes to trailer manufacturing. Specialist adhesives can also be provided for bonding insulated sandwich panels for wall, floor and roofing components in trailers.

These solutions can reduce weight, noise, vibration, cost and improve productivity by removing the requirement for mechanical fasteners (screws, bolts, rivets, etc) and their associated preparation (drilling/punching holes, assembly tools, etc.) as well as providing the refinishing required for an aesthetic finish on welded joints.
