to Direct-to-Metal Adhesive/Sealant

Cary, N.C. -- LORD Corporation 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 will now offer 25% longer shelf life and improved skin time of 15-minutes to 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 (tougher) 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.

Product Information Fusor 800DTM/803DTM

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, U.S. 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 and completed by the end of the year.

Longest Shelf Life

“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,” Creegan said. “The extended shelf lives offered by the new DTM and HD product enhancements provide the longest shelf life of a single-component sealer in the industry.”

LORD introduced the new enhanced features for the DTM and HD product lines during the SEMA Show in early November 2016.
