L&L Launch Seal Room Temperature Curing Elastic Sealants and Adhesives

 

 

 

L&L launch SEAL A-J Series of elastic sealants and adhesives, a range of high performance, room temperature curing paste materials formulated to meet the demanding requirements of the global Commercial Vehicles industry.

According to L&L, typical applications for this new range of materials include:

  • Elastic bonding and sealing of bus / coach roof, side panel, luggage door and floor panels,
  • Elastic bonding and sealing of truck high roof panels, body structures, cockpit and pedal plate areas,
  • Backfilling and sealing exposed joints,
  • Elastic bonding and sealing construction / agricultural vehicle roof, cabin side wall and door panels.

L&L’s A-J series materials are a range of elastic sealants designed to completely seal joints in the body structure to prevent water, noise, air, dust and fumes from intruding into the interior compartment of a commercial vehicle. The range also includes elastic adhesive bonding materials with an excellent balance of strength, elongation and creep resistance for applications requiring robust assembly of dissimilar substrates. A-J series materials completely cure at room temperature via a one-component technology system.

L&L explains that the key features of its SEAL A-J range include:

  • Robust adhesion without primers to most metals and composites for optimum acoustic and anti-corrosion sealing,
  • Enhanced worker safety, with formulations available that are free of solvents, VOC’s and isocyanates,
  • No shrinkage for reduced rework on bonded structures,
  • Full cure at room temperature via atmospheric moisture curing technology,
  • Wide range of cure speeds,
  • Broad range of mechanical properties from elastic sealants to creep resistant elastic adhesives.
