Lord to launch two adhesives at Feiplar

Lord, a Brazilian subsidiary of the North American Lord Corporation, a specialist in the development of structural adhesives and high-performance coatings, will once again exhibit at the Feiplar composites trade fair, which takes place from 6-8 November in São Paulo.

The company will launch two products at the show. The first, called Lord 852 / 25GB, is an acrylic based adhesive suitable for bonding both composites and metal. “It is the product of our portfolio that currently has the best performance, because it combines high uniformity of bonding and high strength, due to the very large internal cohesion, with greater elongation, desirable characteristics in adhesives with superior performance,” explained Andrios de Souza, Sales Supervisor of Lord.

Compared to the previous generations of Lord acrylic adhesives, the novelty has been developed to ensure a performance up to 15% higher in terms of strength. “Despite this significant improvement in performance, the price remains quite competitive,” added Andrios de Souza. Manufactured in Brazil, Lord 852/25GB is already being used by bus assemblers and wind turbine manufacturers.

The other new product is part of the category of adhesives known as Fast PU, that is, formulations based on polyurethane characterised by rapid curing. Call of Lord Fusor 2001/2003 NG, the product maintains the same open time of the conventional PU adhesives, but it reduces the handling time from 2h30 to 45 minutes. “Because of this much faster curing curve, Lord Fusor 2001/2003 NG provides 25% productivity gain,” said Andrios de Souza. This characteristic meets one of the main demands of the automakers, the main target of the new product. “It is the ideal adhesive for collage of bumpers and panels, among other composite parts present in buses, trucks and agricultural vehicles.”
