The automotive manufacturing sector stands out for its significant emphasis on researching and incorporating innovative materials. Take, for instance, the Lynk & Co brand under the Geely Group, inheriting Volvo's commitment to the environment and introducing the 'Three Zeros Health Solution' concept (0 miscellaneous cotton, 0 asphalt, 0 harmful solvents) to the market. AkzoNobel, in treating the interior surfaces of the new KIA electric vehicle model EV9, has ventured into using bio-based coatings for the first time, marking a notable stride in the adoption of such coatings. Regulation 2004/42/EC, governing the restriction of volatile substances in car interiors, has been updated to its latest version. Automakers across the board are increasingly prioritizing the utilization of eco-friendly materials.

The application of pine-based chemicals in the automotive industry is primarily focused on areas such as rubber compounding, paints & coatings, sealants & adhesives.

Adhesives & Sealants

In the automotive industry, adhesives are used to replace mechanical fasteners such as welding, nuts, bolts, etc. Structural adhesives and sealants can not only substitute for mechanical fasteners to connect different types of materials but also enhance the flexibility of rubber components, absorbing vibrations and impact forces. Structural adhesives are currently widely employed in the assembly of battery packs for electric vehicles, allowing the rapid bonding of modules made from different materials and achieving lightweight construction.

The expanding area of in-car entertainment systems in electric vehicles has raised higher demands on adhesives for the bonding of screens and frames.

Coatings & Paints

Solvent-based coatings, water-based coatings, and bio-based coatings are the three main categories of coatings. With formulation improvements, water-based coatings are gradually replacing solvent-based coatings. Bio-based coatings are emerging as a new force, often modified with alkyd resins. Major manufacturers are also responding to the rise of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) by launching innovative product lines.
