Case study: Automotive structural adhesives with Priplast polyester polyols

Structural adhesives are widely used in automotive applications to bond metal, plastic and composite components. These lighter components are used to replace heavier metal parts, improving the fuel efficiency of the vehicle and, nowadays, to compensate for heavy battery components in electric vehicles. Priplast is used in adhesives to enable a strong bond between these various material substrates.

This case study shows how using 1 tonne of Priplast bio-based polyester polyol in automotive structural adhesives can save an average of just over a 1000 tonnes of CO2 by making the car lighter so that less fuel is needed over the vehicle lifetime.
