K.U.K.T. inceases safety in motor sports
As a “joint-venture” with our client Schroth Arnsberg, we developed a highly complex glued adhesion for Indian rubber covers to enhance seatbelt safety. After the initial co-operation to produce a cover in pure rubber, the manufactured parts were glued on a fiberglass enhanced plastic sheet made by Du Pont®.
As part of our co-operation with Kautschuk- und Kunststoffschule Gelnhausen specialized in Indian rubber and plastics, 25 different types of glue from diverse manufacturers were tested in a technical project to verify their respective adhesive characteristics in both, glueing and tearing tests. On level surfaces, the glueing proved to be repeatable – provided the parts covered with glue are attached to a specific area of their counterpart. In order to be able to cope with even the rough tolerances of the fiberglass enhanced plastic sheets, proper glueing gauges were manufactured in the in-house tool and device department. For the final glueing of the thin elastomer components to the bended plastic parts, K.U.K.T. realized a complex glueing tool, thus proving that we are able meet even the most difficult technical requirements.
