Specialist in the development of structural adhesives, LORD presents on Thursday 9 May 2019 a lecture on fast curing polyurethane (PU) adhesives at the 1st Regional Meeting of 2019 promoted by the Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO).
The event takes place at the headquarters of the Light Structures Nucleus (LEL), a laboratory belonging to the Institute of Technological Research (IPT) and located in São José dos Campos (SP).
The paper entitled ‘Enhancing productivity with fast curing PU adhesives’, by Gabriel Matos, LORD’s technical sales assistant, details the characteristics of LORD Fusor 2001/2003 NG adhesive. Based on polyurethane, it is suitable for bonding parts of composites in processes characterised by high production rates, common in the automotive industry, for example.
Compared to the conventional PU adhesives, LORD Fusor 2001/2003 NG maintains the open time, but reduces the handling time. “Because of the much faster curing curve, LORD Fusor 2001/2003 NG provides an increase in productivity,” said Matos.
This characteristic, he noted, meets one of the main demands of the automakers, target audience of LORD Fusor 2001/2003 NG. “It is the ideal product for the collage of bumper, ceilings and panels, among other composite parts present in buses, trucks and agricultural vehicles.”
