LORD Corporation Launches Two Adhesives for Bonding Platinum-Cured Silicones to Multiple Substrates
Oct 11 16
LORD Corporation launched two new in-mold bonding (IMB) systems for bonding platinum-cured silicones to multiple substrates, including plastics, without the need for special surface preparation. LORD IMB 3000 and IMB 3010 adhesive solutions effectively bond platinum-cured liquid silicone rubber (LSR) to various substrates directly in an injection- or compression-molding process. Applying LORD IMB Adhesives to a rigid substrate provides a structural bond when over-molded with thermoplastic or liquid silicone rubber. This technology enables assemblies between plastics, silicones, and metals to be made during the molding process. Silanes must be applied as a very thin coating, sometimes less than 1 micron, which is difficult to control and measure in a manufacturing setting or production environment. Most plastics require plasma treatment to create hydroxyl groups to promote silane bonding. Silicone polymers exhibit a myriad of unique properties that other materials are not able to achieve, combining rubbery flexibility with excellent thermal stability, durability, low-surface energy, biocompatibility, and a soft feel. Applications for IMB Adhesives include consumer electronics, automotive components and medical devices. Compatible substrates for IMB adhesives include aluminum, anodized aluminum, glass, steel/stainless steel, polycarbonate, select polyamides, and select thermoplastic elastomers.
