SMP adhesive technology introduces new efficiencies for automotive manufacturers and suppliers

SMP adhesive technology has the ability to make significant increases in efficiency and safety for many organizations. One tier supplier reduced the amount of assembly stations by 30% through the introduction of a primerless, dual SMP system. The new adhesive technology provided the customer with the same green strength, and quality of his current adhesive while eliminating the stations required for pretreatment and surface preparation often needed with traditional adhesives for low energy substrates.

Reduced flow time in the process led to significant program savings in total cost of equipment investment as well as production line efficiency improvements that drove the tier supplier costs down improving their margin and profitability targets.
