L&L Products will showcase its F610 reformable epoxy adhesive film, the A-K series of ambient curing structural adhesives and the A-J series of ambient curing elastic sealants at JEC Europe 2015.
According to L&L, L-F610 combines the adhesion and mechanical properties of an epoxy with the processing ease of a thermoplastic and, with a tensile elongation of 40%, L&L Products explains it offers very high toughness and has higher strength and better adhesion than traditional thermoplastic adhesive systems. As well as being suitable for a wide variety of substrates including FRP, thermoplastics, metals and wood, it can also be readily used for dissimilar bonding applications. It can be de-bonded and re-formed allowing parts and components to be modified in existing structures. L-F610 is also dry-to-the-touch and transparent, making it ideal for applications where a good cosmetic finish is required. Unlike epoxy thermoset film adhesives, L-F610 does not require refrigerated storage and has a long shelf life.
L&L Products say that its A-K series, two component, ambient curing adhesives have been developed for a wide range of structural bonding applications. They offer high tensile strength, high elongation, low shrinkage and excellent adhesion without primers to composites, thermoplastics (including polypropylene) and metals. Although they can be cured at room temperature, they will withstand high temperature bake cycles. A wide range of viscosities is available to suit application requirements - from non-sagging gels to spreadable pastes. Low/no odour and non-flammable variants are also available.
It claims that its A-J series of ambient curing elastic sealants prevent water, noise, air, dust and fumes from penetrating a structure. They are suitable for use with similar and dissimilar substrates including composites, thermoplastics and metals. As a range of formulations is available, the user can select the required level of strength, elongation, creep resistance and cure speed. For enhanced worker safety, formulations are available that are free of solvents, VOC’s and isocyanates.
L&L Products will be exhibiting in Hall 7.3, Stand B30.
