Providing industry firsts for more than 85 years

Breakthrough Ideas/Opportunities

For more than 85 years, our company has been delivering "firsts" for a broad spectrum of markets. Hugh Lord, an inventor and patent attorney, founded our company in 1924 by providing General Electric an innovative vibration isolation solution for GE's trolley cars. Thus, our roots were established in vibration isolation. Over the years, joining dissimilar materials such as rubber-to-metal, was the key for optimum product performance. Hence, our adhesive and coating business evolved. Our product offerings are broad yet share a common focus. Our MR technology is an excellent example of a solution utilizing our chemical and mechanical expertise.

  • LORD mounts engineered for vibration control on trolley cars
  • Transmission and engine isolators developed for helicopter industry
  • Solvent-based and aqueous adhesives developed for rubber-to-metal bonding
  • Outboard motor mounts developed for the marine industry
  • Urethane coatings cured by ultraviolet light developed for "no-wax" vinyl flooring
  • High-capacity laminate (HCL) rotor bearings for helicopters, greatly reducing vibrations transmitted to the aircraft body
  • Room temperature curing adhesives used for automotive hem flange bonding
  • Active vibration control product developed for the aerospace market
  • Commercialization of magneto-rheological (MR) fluids
