Development of a Novel Bumper Adhesion Promoter

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.12 No.2

Summary

A new type of adhesion promoter for bumper painting was developed to eliminate conventional primer spray application. The importance of this new material allowed for reduced cost and improvement in process efficiency. The new adhesion promoter (HX) is a waterborne emulsion incorporating chlorinated polyolefin, a key enabler of adhesion of base coat to thermoplastic olefin. As a consequence of the material design, the adhesion promoter can be applied as a final rinse, resulting in the primer spray application to become unnecessary. Furthermore, the primer spray booth became available for additional topcoat application, increasing production volumes. Overall, this material has proven to meet rigorous testing, and has been successfully implemented in mass production.
