Plastic Assembly

Plastic materials are ubiquitous in our lives. Many manufacturers of plastic parts & assemblies are constantly looking for ways to differentiate their products and have found that incorporating Plexus® structural adhesives into their designs helps them succeed. Plexus offers design engineers the ability to join plastic to metal and quickly join plastic to plastic in their designs. Plexus adhesives are considered best-in-class adhesives for plastics, due to their ability to bond without surface preparation. New developments have enabled Plexus to bond polyamides, permitting intriguing combinations such as bonding polyamide to aluminum for lightweight vehicles.
