Henkel recognized by Fiat Chrysler
Henkel won top honors for Product-Related Environmental Protection during Fiat Chrysler Automobile's Environment, Health & Safety Leadership Awards event on September 14, 2015.
The award was given for Henkel's Low-Volatility Paint Shop Sealer initiative. The initiative brought Henkel representatives together with FCA sealing engineers, manufacturing engineers and others to develop an analytical test method to determine the level of exhaust stack emissions and exhaust system compensation a paint shop sealer can exhibit prior to formulating a product.
After establishing the test method, Henkel introduced Teroson PV 1097, a seam sealer that reduces water leaks by up to 80 percent and material usage between 20 and 30 percent — but decreases opacity levels to below threshold values, while eliminating chemicals of concern.
