LORD Corporation Key Developments

LORD Corporation Announces Enhancements to Adhesive/Sealant, Seam Sealer Product Lines

LORD Corporation has announced new and improved product enhancements to its Fusor(TM) 800DTM/803DTM Direct-to-Metal Adhesive/Sealant and Fusor(TM) High-Definition Seam Sealers. Both product lines will now offer 25% longer shelf life and improved skin time of 15-minutes to 45-minutes. Fusor DTM and HD products will still carry the same OEM approvals and meet the same specifications as in the past. Fusor HD seam sealer has also been upgraded to offer a more robust (tougher) texture. Fusor HD cartridges have been redesigned to feature a spray-gun icon to ensure spray-only application. The redesigned Fusor DTM has a spray-gun icon with a red line drawn through the icon to indicate that the cartridge is not used as a spray-gun. Fusor 800DTM/803DTM Direct-to-Metal Adhesive/Sealant duplicates a factory appearance on standing seams, cosmetic seams, truck-bed seams, brushed seams, and other applications where a non-sag, cosmetic seam sealer is required. The single-component formulation provides excellent resistance to UV exposure and holds brush marks without die-back and weld-through with no burn-back. Fusor High-Definition Seam Sealers duplicate factory-applied textured seams and provide an extremely flexible, non-yellowing seal with no shrinkage, cracking or sagging. It adheres well to bare or primed surfaces and can be used for duplicating OEM spray-applied seam sealers and surface coatings. The seam sealers are UV resistant and offer corrosion protection. The formula utilizes low VOCs and contains no solvents or isocyanates, thus reducing its environmental impact. LORD introduced the new enhanced features for the DTM and HD product lines during the SEMA Show in early November 2016.

LORD Corporation Delivers First Production Orders for CH-47 Chinook Improved Vibration Control System

LORD Corporation has announced delivery of the first production orders of its Improved Vibration Control System (IVCS) to Boeing for the CH-47 Chinook helicopter. LORD has an agreement with Boeing through 2019 to support Boeing CH-47 production activities in Philadelphia, Pa. LORD will provide IVCS System components of the patented system that controls steady state and transient vibration as part of the CH-47 standard configuration for the remainder of the U.S. Government Multi-Year II (MYII) effort.

LORD Corporation Launches Two Adhesives for Bonding Platinum-Cured Silicones to Multiple Substrates

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.
