HGV applications

Within Daimler Trucks, Crestabond M1-05 primer less methacrylate structural adhesive is now specified for a variety of HGV applications. This includes M1-05 being used to bond ABS to ABS and ABS to aluminium components together as part of the assembly process used to fabricate the sleeping bunk in the driver’s cab of Freightliner Trucks in North America.  The bonding of these ABS and aluminium bunk parts with Crestabond  M1-05 is carried out by a local subcontract thermoforming specialist, which supplies assembled bunks to the Freightliner Trucks Saltillo assembly plant in Mexico, where the bunks are installed on the truck cabin production line.
