Adhesive Bonding

ADHESIVE BONDING IS A BONDING TECHNIQUE WHICH BONDS COMPONENTS TOGETHER USING A SUBSTANCE-TO-SUCSTANCE ADHESIVE (DIN 8593-8).

Adhesive bonding uses an adhesive to create a permanent bond between two components. The components can be made of entirely different materials such as glass and metal, enabling a wide array of design possibilities for vehicle engineers and designers. The most prominent advantage of adhesive bonding, however, is lightweight design. By joining fiberglass reinforced plastic (GRP) and carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFP), it is possible to achieve significant weight reductions without compromising the load capacity of rail vehicles.

In the production halls at OWS, we primarily carry out thick-film bonding on r ail vehicles. Our employees specialize in the bonding of panes of glass to vehicle bodies as well as attaching front masks or paneling to the vehicle.

Here at OWS, we know that safe and reliable adhesive bonding requires precise know-how when it comes to the materials used and, especially, the surfaces of components. Employee training and experience, precise execution and strict adherence to bonding processes are not only the prerequisites for perfect bonding but also shape our standard of quality at OWS. The requirements for bonding quality control measures are described in DIN 6701 and DIN 2304-1. Our DIN 6701 certification is assessed and confirmed by an independent certification authority on a regular basis.


ADHESIVE BONDING ON RAIL VEHICLES

The use of bonding techniques has evolved significantly over the past few years. Bonding in rail vehicle construction is subject to a wide range of safety requirements. The DIN 6701 quality standard has been declared the state of technology by the German Federal Railway Authority (EBA) and stipulates binding standards for bonding in the railway industry. OWS is certified according to this standard and provides services and products in line with the quality control measures contained therein.
