Sign Bonding Adhesives

LORD Structural Adhesives are full performance sign adhesives that offer advantages over welding and mechanical fastening. Our sign adhesives bond dissimilar materials, provide improved appearance, insulate against galvanic corrosion and offer excellent environmental resistance. Adhesive bonding provides cost savings due to reduced labor costs and sign assembly time.

Signlok sign adhesives provide right-sized packaging to fit most jobs and eliminate waste, are UL approved, and have long shelf life options that reduces costs.

Application Tips for Sign Adhesives Part 3: Using the Right Amount of Adhesive
Complete adhesive coverage in a bonding area is important, but how much is too much? With adhesives, more is not necessarily better. We'll walk you through how to apply a sign adhesive to get the best result.
Selecting the Right Sign Adhesive for the Job
Signs are not only important for wayfinding but are a critical part of any business’s branding message. As such, signs must be creatively designed and reliably constructed. Structural adhesives can replace welding, riveting and other mechanical fasteners. They offer improved appearance, lower costs and shorter assembly time.
