Henkel Helps Improve Passenger Comfort In All-New 2019 Ram 1500

Noise reduction and Enhanced Sealing Capabilities Result for New Ram

Madison Heights, MI /PRNewswire/ - Henkel, a leading supplier of adhesives, sealants and surface technologies, is providing a baffle package and paint shop seam sealer for the new 2019 Ram 1500. The baffle package significantly reduces air leakage in the vehicle body, decreasing unwanted noise in the passenger cabin. Additionally, the baffles provide manufacturing flexibility, achieving a variety of expansions from just one material, eliminating the need to invest in new tooling equipment.

Henkel is also providing its next generation paint shop seam sealer, TEROSON® PV 1098™, on the 2019 Ram 1500. The sealer is used on body panels to prevent water, dirt and fumes from entering the cabin of the vehicle.      

"TEROSON 1098 is solvent-free, contributing to a significantly reduced environmental impact," said Paul Drzyzga, Global Key Account Manager, Henkel. "The technology also meets a broad range of applied width and thickness requirements, reducing expenses in terms of material usage and plant maintenance."

FCA US LLC recognized Henkel with the Supplier of the Year award at MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit on Tuesday, April 24 in the category of diversity. The Supplier of the Year awards recognize automotive suppliers that have shown an extraordinary commitment to the Company.
