Sika, a leading manufacturer of specialty adhesives for construction and industry, has won two awards in the 2015 Automotive News’ Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence (PACE) Award Show. The prestigious PACE Awards were given in Detroit, MI last month. Sika was recognized with a product innovation award for Sikaflex Ultra-High Modulus Adhesive (UHM), as well as an Innovation Partnership Award for their collaboration with BMW. Sikaflex UHM is a high-modulus, fast-cure adhesive used to bond the Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic Life Module to the aluminum chassis Drive Module on the BMW i3 and i8. The judging panel reviewed all of the PACE Finalists, as well as their respective OEMs, and recognized BMW for a unique high level of collaboration with Sika in development of the BMW i3. Dave Jones, Head of Global Automotive at Sika, commented on the awards, “Today’s cars require innovative products enabling OEMs to meet their manufacturing needs and performance goals. I am proud that Sika can provide the full range of technology to support our customers’ lightweighting needs.”
