L&L Bond Room Temperature Curing Structural Adhesives

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.
