Fuel Saving with Bonding Materials and the European ELV Legislation Compliance – A Conflict or an Environmental Benefit? 2004-01-1296
The use bonding materials in modern light weight vehicles may seem to restrict the requirements of the European End of Life Vehicle Directive. The high weight reduction efficiency of the various bonding applications supports the fuel reduction target of the OEMs and does not restrict compliance with the recycling or energy recovery targets. The paper summarizes the various bonding applications and their materials aspects.
