Adhesives - Trailers

Plexus® adhesives are powerful tools to help build the next generation of truck trailers. Quieter, faster, and stronger than mechanical fasteners, Plexus adhesives provide benefits in both the factory and showroom floor.  Plexus adhesives save costs in time & material, all while making the assembly area quieter & cleaner.  Product designers will have the ability to freely use mixed materials (including dissimilar metals and composites) and include design options not possible with mechanical fasteners. The end results are lighter, more durable and leak-free trailers.
