Next Generation, Fast-Curing Reactive Polyolefin Hot Melt for Automotive Interior Trim

Join Dr. Martin Weller, H.B. Fuller research scientist as he presents his white paper, Next Generation, Fast Curing Reactive Polyolefin Hot Melt for Automotive Interior Trim. Come and listen to Martin on Tuesday, October 11 at 4:30 p.m. in Conference Hall I at the TPO Automotive Engineered Polyolefins Conference to hear about an exciting, state-of-the-art thermosetting hot melt adhesive solution for safe, fast and cost-effective bonding of unprimed polypropylene.

Martin Weller, H.B. Fuller scientist for automotive.

Dr. Martin Weller

Martin Weller is a research scientist in H.B. Fuller’s Automotive business. Martin is an expert in reactive and non-reactive hot melt adhesives with over 15 years developing and overseeing the development of new products and technologies. He holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Karlsruhe in Germany.

Manufacturers of laminated interior trim components for automobiles are driven to produce high-performance parts with lighter, less expensive materials, simultaneously reducing production costs and maintaining a safe working environment. Use of lightweight, cost-effective polypropylene as the carrier partially addresses the challenge. Next generation reactive moisture curing polyolefin hot melt adhesives address the remaining challenge, that of providing strong bonds without pretreatment as well as rapid strength development to reduce cycle times and work in process inventory. This presentation gives a deeper analysis of the exciting, state-of-the-art thermosetting hot melt adhesive solutions for safe, fast and cost-effective bonding of unprimed polypropylene.

Stop by table 30 in the Dennison exhibitor room to find out more about how H.B. Fuller can partner with you for your automotive adhesive needs. Connect with Matt McGreevy to set up a time to meet at TPO Conference.
