Benefits for Specialty Construction
Manufacturers

Specialty Substrate Bonding

Composite-to-Composite Bonding Adhesives create superior bonds to a wide variety of substrates and provide a highly
aesthetic appearance to your final product. Our adhesives act as sealants, insulators and noise and vibration dampers for increased
performance and functionality. They reduce material and labor costs by eliminating the need to prime many plastics and provide
long working times, allowing for accurate part alignment and good assembly quality. Additionally, methacrylics composite bonding
adhesives offer low shrinkage, low water absorption and excellent creep resistance.

Painted Metal-to-Plastic Bonding Adhesives offer many benefits compared to traditional fastening methods such as welds, rivets, screws and tapes. LORD adhesives reduce material and labor costs by eliminating the need to prime many plastics and minimizing overall assembly time. LORD adhesives create high strength metal-to-plastic bonds and provide good chemical, water and impact resistance while fighting off humidity, salt spray, sunlight, weathering and aging.

Our adhesives also offer resistance to solvents when cured and are free of VOC and ozone depleting chemicals.

COMPOSITE-TO COMPOSITE BONDING

• Ability to bond dissimilar substrates
• 20+ years of proven frame bonding experience
• High-performance, two-part sealants
• Improved aesthetics
• Increased output through reduced cycle-times
• Sandable and paintable
• High adhesion and durability leading to increased structural 

  rigidity

Benefits for Specialty Vehicle Manufacturers

Painted Metal-To-Plastic Bonding

Metal-to-Metal Bonding Adhesives offer improved in-service fatigue life in addition to providing stiffness to the assembly.
They improve aesthetics, durability and help prevent galvanic corrosion by forming a continuous seal between dissimilar metal
substrates without disrupting currently present metal coatings. LORD adhesives compensate for dimensional irregularities by
filling in small gaps on poor fitting parts and distribute stresses throughout the bondline, providing a stronger bond seal to keep
moisture out. LORD adhesives are versatile, bonding to a wide variety of metals without the negatives associated with traditional
fastening methods like scaring and post finishing.

METHACRYLICS & STRUCTURALS

Methcrylate Bonding Adhesives offer improved aesthetics, improved durability and reduced costs over traditional fastening methods such as welds, rivets, screws and tapes. With LORD adhesives, there are no weld scars and no need to remove worn out mechanical fasteners, reducing material costs and labor time. LORD adhesives demonstrate their versatility by bonding to a wide variety of substrates including unprepared metals, ceramics and plastics. They flow into hard-to-reach areas and fight off an array of different dilute acids, alkalis, solvents, greases and oils while acting as a sealant, insulator and noise or vibration damper. Additional advantages include reduced weight, corrosion resistance and an overall stronger bond.

Methcrylate Bonding Adhesives offer structural rigidity and increased output with fast, two-component cure adhesives. With the ability to cross-bond multiple substrates such as concrete/stone, cryogenics, elastomers/thermoplastics/TPU, fabric/foam, glass and wood, our adhesives offer high performance adhesion and durability over conventional fastening methods. Methcrylate Bonding Adhesives improve aesthetics, reduce corrosion and are sandable and paintable with excellent environmental and UV resistance.

Yes. It is safe to paint over the adhesives after full cure. Refer to the technical data sheet for full cure time. After full cure, solvent wipe to remove surface tack, and dust prior to painting.
