The powerful Li-Ion battery packs of today’s modern electric vehicles rely on a wide variety of technologies to ensure the best possible driving experience. Gasketing and structural bonding play a key role in delivering a battery that is efficient, durable and maximizes performance, while delivering a comfortable driving experience.   Let’s take a deeper dive […]

By Eugene Chung, Henkel Today, the automotive industry is witnessing history in the making on multiple fronts. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are changing the very idea of the driving experience. In concert with ADAS, electric vehicles are becoming more commonplace — in fact, within just over 20 years, Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts they will […]

Noticeably absent from vehicles over recent years is the appearance of rust, that orange-red coating that forms on the surface of metals and weakens the bonds of the metal itself. This is due to significant advances in metals pretreatment products. According to Technavio market research analysts, the global pretreatment market is predicted to grow more […]

Lightweighting continues to be a major focus of innovation within the automotive industry, especially with the addition of in-vehicle technologies for a wide array of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that are paving the way toward autonomous vehicles. These connected systems all add weight, which is why it is increasingly important to use Smart Chemistry […]

It’s the end of the On the Road Technology Tour, however the journey towards advanced chemistry for tomorrow’s vehicles is just beginning! Henkel invited attendees from Automotive OEM and Suppliers to explore the role Smart Chemistry plays in enabling advanced vehicle technologies leading the way towards lightweighting and autonomous vehicle platforms. With the changing landscape […]

Faced with tighter regulatory demands and growing consumer awareness of better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, automotive manufacturers and suppliers are increasingly moving from traditional steel sheet or galvanized alloys to mixed and very lightweight metals that offer significant savings. Reducing a vehicle’s weight by just 10 percent can improve fuel economy by 6-8 percent! […]

High-quality die-cast metal components and electronic parts play a vital role in the automotive industry. The reliability and safety needs of today’s automotive industry requires all parts to be fully sealed against fluids, gases and other external influences. At the same time, the automotive industry is confronted with the increasingly demanding challenges of reducing costs, […]

Maintenance personnel know how important cleaning is to maintaining efficient turbines. Airborne particles inevitably ingress into the gas turbine compressor, fouling the air path surface. This leads to reduced efficiency and increased fuel consumption. The question is whether the cleaning should be done online or offline. Both methods are complementary, and both are important. In […]

In oil and gas terms, a decade is little more than a heartbeat. According to the American Petroleum Institute, it can take up to 10 years just to bring an offshore well from leasing to production, and even longer in areas with no preexisting infrastructure. After spending so much time and potentially billions of dollars […]

Temperature is an important consideration throughout the entire vehicle development process. The most prominent example is inside the car where driver and passenger comfort are taken into account. This is far from the only example, though, especially today as lightweighting initiatives have introduced mixed material designs that cause a new set of challenges related to thermal […]
