Paper Title:
Structural Bonding for Lightweight Construction
  Abstract

The demand for safer, lighter and more fuel efficient vehicles has led to the market entry of light weight construction, with the use of advanced high strength steels, engineering plastic and light weight metals. Maximum weight savings potential will be limited if these are used in isolation. Chemistry based structural adhesives and foams enable the intelligent use of all three weight saving methodologies to overcome the problems of safety, quality and high processing cost.
