The automotive cockpit is rapidly advancing in elegant designs, employing a myriad of digital displays for center stack, instrument clusters and heads up displays. Evolving material combinations, optical performance requirements, environmental durability and user enhanced experience of the HMI creates a need for bonding solutions appropriate for the challenge of the design and robust function. Cost pressures in automotive assembly of components drives opportunities to develop novel processing methods that increases throughput, reduce cycle time, and reduce scrap. Henkel has a portfolio of solutions for optical bonding, structural bonding and related processing application that addresses the challenge that automotive display manufacturers are seeking to resolve.
