For high-performance products that get lots of wear and tear, solvent-based adhesives are essential during manufacturing. They are the best product to bind different materials together from metal to rubber.

In the sky

Airplanes are made of thousands of metal parts that solvent-based adhesives ensure stay firmly bonded together under intense stress. Next time you are flying high in the sky, remember that solvents are helping to deliver you safely to your destination.

On the road

Solvents make your car tyres strong too. Solvent-based adhesives keep the many different layers of material glued firmly together. Without them, rubber tyres could breakdown in bad conditions, leaving you with a flat or worse.

On your feet

Whether you are wearing running shoes or stilettos, solvents ensure that you can reliably pound the pavement. Solvent-based adhesives bond the materials in all types of footwear together, keeping them nice and strong.
