L&L Products has worked to develop an elastomeric adhesive, A-J215, to help bond and seal FRP, stainless steel and aluminium applications at one of the world’s leading bus manufacturers.
For many years, this major bus maker has employed a conventional polyurethane elastic adhesive to bond and seal the side, roof, and front / rear panels of their bus and coach models. Prior to application of the adhesive, each substrate required cleaning and priming with a specialist pre-treatment systems.
These adhesives, cleaners, and primers all contained hazardous materials, including solvents and / or isocyanates. According to L&L Products, its newly formulated material - A-J215 – was able to allow this customer to modernise and accelerate its production process for future models. A-J215 is primerless and is free from solvents and isocyanates. Panels can then be over painted when wet making it very easy to apply, while producing a perfect finish.
L&L Products says that A-J215 has secured all technical approvals, and it will start serial supply to its customer later this year as it introduces a new model to its production.
L&L Products invites you to join them at JEC World 2017 in Paris (Hall 6, Booth #R27) to discuss products such as A-J215 that can help to improve your bonding challenge.
