Henkel and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are set to discuss their close cooperation in the development of ground-breaking new treatment processes applied to the latest version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Surcar 2017

Both companies will share the podium at Surcar 2017, the international meeting on automotive body finishing taking place in Cannes, France, on June 29-30. FCA and Henkel worked together for almost three years to develop and tailor Henkel materials and systems for FCA’s specific needs. At Surcar, Roberto Selvestrel from FCA Materials Engineering Paint and Manfred Holzmueller, Sales Director Transplant OEM Business at Henkel, will discuss results achieved by using new metal treatment systems applied to the new Giulia, created through close cooperation between body engineering, process & materials engineering, and the process material supplier. They will shed light on a holistic approach involving state-of-the-art multi-metal pretreatment technology as well as acoustic, structural, sealing & coating technologies in the body and paint shop. The new Giulia has a body that is 90 kg lighter than a comparable all-steel body.
