Experience Henkel’s full range of auto body treatments up close
For many years now, adhesive technologies have been an important component of vehicle production, but also of vehicle repairs and maintenance. Customers value high-quality workmanship and increased safety, and want their cars to be restored to their ex-factory state. This can be achieved, for instance, by creating sealants that impart OEM looks and quality. Henkel’s comprehensive product portfolio provides just this with its range of auto body innovations, which can be experienced live at our stand with the help of a vehicle that has undergone extensive preparations.
Experience Henkel’s collaboration with BRABUS live
The collaboration between BRABUS and Henkel Adhesive Technologies’ Original Equipment Services (OES) was recently announced at the Frankfurt IAA Motor Show. BRABUS uses a large selection of cleaning agents and high-performance adhesives and sealants from the Loctite and Teroson brands in all areas of motor tuning and in exclusive small-batch productions. This includes surface sealants for motors and gear boxes, and silicone sealants for screw locking devices, oil pans, and water and oil pumps. Showing a V12 high-performance BRABUS engine at the booth, our technical staff will demonstrate areas of Loctite key applications on engine tuning and maintenance.
Interactive prize draw with the Bonderite C-MC 400 Graffiti Remover
With its large product portfolio, Henkel Adhesive Technologies has a wide range of body maintenance solutions on offer. In the interior of a disassembled car, visitors will be able to experience the full range of Henkel’s products and treatments up close. These include sealants, direct glazing adhesives, plastic repairs, anti-flutter applications, body-cavity sealing and threadlockers. Specialist staff will be on hand at the neighboring treatment island to answer visitors’ questions about technical treatments and will provide explanations for product innovations like Teroson PU 9161, an anti-flutter treatment for auto body panels.
The car’s exterior has been decorated with artistic graffiti.

Visitors taking part will be able to experience firsthand how reliably and quickly Bonderite C-MC 400 removes unwanted graffiti, which is particularly annoying on public transport. Those who uncover one of 15 crosses on the auto body using the remover will win a high-quality Premium Line starter kit from the recently launched Henkel lacquer polish series. Participants will also be in the draw to win two DFB tickets for the Germany vs. Czech Republic match in Hamburg on October 8, 2016.
Online portal reloaded
The online portal www.vehicle-repair-solutions.com, launched in Germany, France and Great Britain in 2014, provides customized industry products and helps Henkel customers and users of Henkel’s repair products to stay a couple of steps ahead of the competition.
