Henkel introduces new tin replacement solution

Henkel has introduced Teroson EP 5020 TR, a two-component epoxy-based cold rebuilding material designed to replace conventional tin solder in aftermarket repairs of automotive body damages.

A fast curing, easy to sand and smooth application, the material also eliminates the heat and open flame process required for tin soldered repairs.

Teroson EP 5020 TR is supplied in manual gun cartridges with a special mixing nozzle for ease of application. It can be used on all metal surfaces, including modern steel alloys and aluminum, as well as for body repairs on all kinds of vehicles, including trucks.

“By providing a cold rebuilding solution to replace conventional hot tin soldering, our new two-component Teroson EP 5020 TR product saves time and labor in aftermarket body repairs and is also safer to work with,” says Joern Senftleben, regional technology/segment engineer, vehicle repair & maintenance at Henkel. “Moreover, as a completely tin-free and heavy-metal-free material it is also a more sustainable alternative.”
