L&L Bond Room Temperature Curing Structural Adhesives
27 January 2015
L&L’s A-K series of high performance structural adhesives, intended for use in structural bonding applications for vehicle assembly, cure completely at room temperature via a two-component technology system.
Typical applications for this new range of materials include:
Structural bonding of truck body assembly, high roof structures, grill assemblies, bumper modules, closures, aerodynamic trim, fender structures, hood assemblies and cockpit structures,
Structural bonding of bus side panels, luggage doors, passenger doors, roof structures, front and rear end modules, interior trim,
Structural bonding of closures, cabin structures, hood assemblies, roof modules and interior trim of agricultural and construction vehicles.
It explains that key features of the L&L BOND A-K range include:
Robust adhesion without primers to metals (including galvanised steel and aluminium), composites and FRP, low energy plastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene and GMT for optimum structural performance,
Enhanced worker safety, with low / no odour and non-flammable systems,
Low shrinkage for reduced rework on bonded structures,
Wide range of cure speeds,
Withstands high temperature bake cycles,
High tensile strength and elongation,
A wide range of viscosities are available to suit application requirements from non-sagging gels to spreadable pastes.
NTPT is collaborating with the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne - Swiss Centre of Technology (EPFL) and other partners to research discontinuous fibre composite tubes for high performance applications.
