Technomelt XPO 1050 polyolefin-based hotmelt from Henkel Corp. can bond a variety of interior-related substrates without the need for pretreatment of the plastic surface. It is used in the development of a number of interiors applications, including door panels, rear package trays, pillar trims, and instrument panels. According to Henkel, Technomelt XPO 1050 is applied through a roll-coating process, requiring less adhesive than typical sprayable adhesives while eliminating as much as 25% overspray waste. Technomelt XPO 1050 can reduce vehicle mass by 0.8 to 2.2 kg (1.8 to 4.9 lb) per vehicle, based on the amount of adhesive needed for 20 m2 (215 ft2), claims the company.
