With lightweight materials increasing to help lighten and enable new technologies, bonding has increased in the automotive industries. Bonds meant to last the lifetime of a car require pristinely cleaned surfaces – which is where Adapt’s laser cleaning solutions become the enabler of new automotive practices.
Laser cleaning removes residues such as oils, grease, and dry lube. It also removes contaminant oxides from aluminum, titanium, and other types of metals. If desired, Adapt Laser has also created a solution to hyperpassivate the surface – creating corrosion resistance and the most stable bonding surface available.
Hyperpassivation works best for lightweight materials only and is perfect for not only bonding preparation but also ensuring batteries or other components are sealed when bonded to prevent against creep corrosion.
