Structural Adhesive Bonding for Truck Refrigeration Trailers: secure adhesion for bonds with long-term stability

Truck refrigeration trailers are composed of sandwich elements providing excellent insulation. The entire refrigeration superstructure is self-supporting and reinforcing profiles are glued to its corners and longitudinal edges.

Leading refrigeration trailer manufacturers have chosen Openair® plasma pretreatment to ensure uniform bonding at a high level. When this process is used, there is no need for toxic primers at all, and no more investing in expensive equipment to recover solvent vapors.
