Overview - Chemlok CB Room Tempurature Rubber Bonding

LORD Chemlok CB - One Component Cold-Bonding Rubber-to-Metal AdhesiveLORD Corporation, the world leader in vulcanizing adhesives ("hot-bonders"), now has a cold-bonding adhesive that is easier and safer to use than existing alternatives. Many existing cold-bonding adhesives for bonding pre-vulcanized rubber to metal are two-component adhesives that utilize carcinogenic substances. With that in mind, we want to offer room tempurature cold-bonding solutions consistent with our values of developing products that are easier and safer to use.

LORD Chemlok CB allows you to:

  1. Save Money - Chemlok CB is a one-component adhesive (i.e. it requires no hardeners). Quit throwing out adhesive that reacts before you can apply it!
  2. Work Safer - Chemlok CB contains no known carcinogenic substances.
  3. Ensure Quality - Chemlok CB is designed to deliver comparable strength and cure rates as existing two-component systems (cold vulcanizing cements).

Once mixed, material starts curing. It has a two-hour application window. How much adhesive is being wasted because it reacts before it can be applied?

Chemlok CB Process

One component - no mixing - less waste.

How Does Chemlok CB Work?

Chemlok CB works in a three step chemical process:
