Multiple car manufacturers have moved away from using any welds in their vehicles, instead opting to use strong adhesives to reduce weight, noise, and vibration. Two part adhesives, applied with a static mixer, are now the bonding method of choice in some luxury car brands. Aluminum is notoriously hard to weld, and adhesive eliminates the need for rivets, saving weight. Brands such as Land Rover and Aston Martin have moved toward adhesives instead of welds, and have mass produced certain models for decades using adhesives as their preferred bonding method.
