LORD Corporation Announces Enhancements to Adhesive/Sealant and Seam Sealer Product Lines

LORD Corporation, a leader in the development of adhesives, coatings, motion management devices, and sensing technologies, and exhibitor at the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, has announced new and improved product enhancements to its Fusor 800DTM/803DTM direct-to-metal adhesive/sealant and Fusor High-Definition seam sealers.

Both product lines now offer a 25% longer shelf life and improved skin time of between 15 and 45 minutes. Fusor DTM and HD products will still carry the same OEM approvals and meet the same specifications as in the past. Fusor HD seam sealer has also been upgraded to offer a more robust texture.

Fusor HD cartridges have been redesigned to feature a spray gun icon to ensure spray-only application. The redesigned Fusor DTM has a spray gun icon with a red line drawn through the icon to indicate that the cartridge is not used as a spray gun.

Fusor 800DTM/803DTM direct-to-metal adhesive/sealant duplicates a factory appearance on standing seams, cosmetic seams, truck bed seams, brushed seams, and other applications where a non-sag, cosmetic seam sealer is required. The single-component formulation provides excellent resistance to UV exposure and holds brush marks without die-back and weld-through with no burn-back.

Fusor High-Definition seam sealers duplicate factory-applied textured seams and provide an extremely flexible, non-yellowing seal with no shrinkage, cracking or sagging. It adheres well to bare or primed surfaces and can be used for duplicating OEM spray-applied seam sealers and surface coatings. The seam sealers are UV resistant and offer corrosion protection. The formula utilizes low VOCs and contains no solvents or isocyanates, thus reducing its environmental impact.

According to Kevin Creegan, LORD Corporation Sales Manager, US and Canada, the “new and improved” versions of all six part numbers for the Fusor DTM and HD product lines will be introduced in a “rolling change” beginning in November 2016 and completed by the end of the year.

“The new features and improvements we have made to the Fusor DTM and HD product lines will make these best-in-class products even more beneficial for our customers,” says Creegan. “The extended shelf lives offered by the new DTM and HD product enhancements provide the longest shelf life of any single-component sealer in the industry.”
