UL & Intertek Approve Daubond® U8508-10 Hot Melt PUR Adhesive

Published on 2013-07-26. Author : SpecialChem

Daubond® U8508-10 from Daubert Chemical is a single component, hot melt adhesive that reacts with moisture to become a cross-linked, thermoset adhesive. When cured, it exhibits excellent resistance to heat, cold, and water. Designed for assembly operations requiring long open times, Daubond® U8508-10 allows assembled parts to be handled shortly after nipping or pressing, with bond strength increasing over time (full cure takes place 1-2 days afterwards, depending on moisture conditions).

These properties have been widely recognized by companies that manufacture doors, paneling, and other lamination applications. One company that wanted to explore its use in the manufacture of fire-rated doors asked Daubert to fire test U8508-10.

A fully assembled steel door (consisting of an interior foam core adhered to metal on both sides) was submitted for testing by Intertek and UL. The steel door endured two hours at 1980°F. The UL approval applies when the maximum adhesive application rate is 11 grams/ft2 or less, while the Intertek (Warnock-Hersey) approval applies when the maximum adhesive rate is 8 grams/ft2 or less.

Typical Applications

Daubond® adhesives are widely recognized as superior formulations in thermoforming, lamination and assembly operations. Featuring an *environmentally friendly formulation, they can be applied on a wide range of substrates, skins and core materials. Note that Daubert's sales executives offer full process support of customer manufacturing processes, and regularly test product improvement ideas to help save time and money.

*Daubond® U8508-10 contains a small amount of free isocyanate (diphenylmethane diisocyanate) and therefore should be used with adequate forced air ventilation during application. Daubond® is a Registered Trademark of Daubert Chemical Company, Inc.
