Lord is introducing the Fusor 2001/2003 NG polyurethane-based adhesive suitable for bonding composites parts produced at high production rates, as in the automotive industry.
In comparison to conventional polyurethane adhesives, Fusor 2001/2003 NG maintains the same open time, but reduces handling time from 2.5 hours to 45 minutes, Lord reports.
“Due to the much faster cure curve, Lord Fusor 2001/2003 NG provides a considerable increase in productivity,” says Andrios de Souza, Sales Supervisor at Lord, a Brazilian subsidiary of North American company Lord Corporation. “It is the ideal product for bonding bumpers, ceilings and panels, among other composites parts present in buses, trucks and agricultural vehicles.”
From the point of view of application, Fusor 2001/2003 NG is similar to other polyurethane-based adhesives produced by Lord.
“It has the same viscosity as the previous generation," de Souza explains. "Thus, the user does not have to make any changes to use this new formulation.”
The adhesive will be a highlight of the company's booth at Feiplar Composites on 6-8 November.
Lord has been operating in Brazil since 1972.
