LORD Corporation Introduces Fusor® 208B , an Epoxy-based Panel Bonding Adhesive

Published on 2015-03-09. Author : SpecialChem

LORD Corporation has announced the availability of a new versatile metal and plastic panel bonding adhesive offering no tack and no odor.

According to Kevin Creegan, Sales Manager, LORD Fusor Aftermarket Repair Adhesives, U.S. and Canada, Fusor® 208B Panel Bonding Adhesive is a versatile epoxy-based metal and plastic panel bonding adhesive with no odor during application that also features a tack-free surface when cured. He noted that Fusor 208B was developed in response to customer requests for an alternative to other epoxy panel bonding adhesives that, at best, offer only marginal corrosion protection. Suitable for panel, weld and rivet bonding of all steel or aluminum panels, the adhesive provides excellent corrosion protection and strength. Further, its curing and handling strength can be accelerated with heat.

Applications include installation of large steel, aluminum and SMC/FRP body panels such as quarter panels, floor pans, rear body panels and roof skins. It has also proven to improve CSI weld through with squeeze type resistance spot welding. Fusor 208B has great sag resistance and may be dispensed manually or with a pneumatic applicator.
"Years of research and development have been spent in perfecting Fusor 208B and I urge all body shop technicians to try it as it's one of our best products," said Creegan. "Test market results prove that customers prefer odor- and tack-free Fusor 208B over competing panel bonding adhesives because of its versatility in bonding, weld bonding and rivet bonding a wide variety of substrates."

Test market locations revealed an apparent need for the tack-free, no odor panel bonding adhesive. "I tested the new LORD Fusor 208B and cannot wait to add this new tack-free, no odor panel bonding adhesive to our arsenal," said Mike (Higgy) Higgins of Bud Baer Collision in Washington, Pa.

"Ensuring no come-backs, Fusor 208B gives shops the opportunity to improve customer satisfaction," said Doug Craig, LORD Technical Application Engineer. "Cyclical corrosion results show that Fusor 208B provides superior corrosion resistance over the leading epoxy panel bonding adhesive. It also provides a cohesive failure mode, which prohibits under bond corrosion and is backed by our lifetime guarantee."
