Structural bonding of exterior components & interior of rail vehicles
On the outside, GFK structures are glued to the steel wagon box. Due to the component size and different material properties, the adhesive joint must be elastic but high-strength. 1- and 2-component polyurethane adhesives are used. The two-component technology ensures the curing of large adhesive beads without additional humidity.
Some of the materials are qualified by OEMs and large railway operators and tested according to EN45545-2.
