Sika opens new adhesives factory in Brazil
New factory manufactures adhesives and a wide range of acoustic products for the automotive market in Latin America.

BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG has opened a new factory for adhesives and acoustic products in Sao Paulo, Brazil, tapping into the future potential of the automotive sector in Latin America.

Today, more than 25 million vehicles produced worldwide are made stronger and safer with the company’s structural adhesives, while its acoustic systems reduce interior noise by more than 30 percent.

The new factory in Sao Paulo with its adjoining technology center will manufacture adhesives and a wide range of acoustic products for the automotive market in Latin America. The high-performance technologies are used in various applications, including acoustic and sealing applications, to reduce the noise level in cars, or to structurally bond vehicle body shells.

Bonding technology has huge advantages over welding and helps the automotive industry respond to current trends in modern vehicle construction, such as crash resistance, lightweight construction, and mixed material design. Due to Sika products, vehicles are becoming safer, lighter, quieter and more environmentally friendly.

“As the market leader, we are devoted to locally serve our customers and offer them our full range of innovative products. We are proud to be able to provide our global product range in Brazil to international car makers such as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, General Motors, Volkswagen and Toyota,” said Dave Jones, head of global automotive at Sika.
