Lord introduces new fast cure polyurethane adhesive

The product meets one of the main demands of the automakers. © LordLord, a Brazilian subsidiary of the North American Lord Corporation, a specialist in the development of structural adhesives and high-performance coatings, is introducing the Fusor 2001/2003 NG polyurethane-based adhesive suitable for bonding composites parts produced at high production rates.

In comparison to conventional polyurethane adhesives, the new product is said to maintain the same open time but reduce the handling time from 2h30 to 45 minutes. “Due to the much faster cure curve, LORD Fusor 2001/2003 NG provides a considerable increase in productivity,” said Andrios de Souza, Lord's sales supervisor.

This characteristic meets one of the main demands of the automakers, the goal of the company’s new adhesive. “It is the ideal product for bonding bumpers, ceilings and panels, among other composites parts present in buses, trucks and agricultural vehicles,” the manufacturer says.

From the point of view of application, Lord Fusor 2001/2003 NG is similar to other polyurethane based adhesives produced by Lord. “It has the same viscosity as the previous generation. Thus, the user does not have to make any changes to use this new formulation,” the company explained.

The company will present its latest development at the Feiplar Composites show, the main composites industry trade fair in Latin America, in November.
