Chemlok® 218T Adhesive Where to Buy


Product Information

LORD Chemlok® 218T adhesive is a one-coat, non-chlorinated solvent version of Chemlok 218 adhesive. Chemlok 218T adhesive is used to bond castable and millable urethane elastomers to metals and other rigid substrates.

Shelf Life

Shelf life is one year from date of shipment when stored at 21-27°C (70-80°F) in original, unopened container. Do not store or use near heat, sparks or open flame.

Features and Benefits

Versatile - bonds metal to a wide variety of polyether and polyester compounds.

Non-Pigmented - prevents color leaching into the urethane elastomer.

Convenient - requires only a single coat application, eliminating the need for a primer and minimizing application costs.

Auxiliary Products

Chemlok<sup>®</sup> 219 Primer and/or Adhesive

primer/castable urethane and TPU adhesive

Features and Benefits

Versatile – bonds a wide variety of polyether and polyester urethane based compounds to metal; can be used as a primer.

Economical – eliminates the need to inventory several adhesives due to the adhesive's versatility.

Convenient – requires only a single coat for most adhesive applications, minimizing application costs.

Time Saving – requires no agitation in preparation for use or during application, saving application time and reducing the potential for application errors. Non-settling Chemlok 219 adhesive is ready to dip or brush when opened.

Fast Drying – dries fast to allow rapid turnaround times, reducing the number of coated parts kept in inventory.

fast curing release agent designed for use with molded elastomers

Features and Benefits

Process Enhancer – provides quick, easy part release from molds; single application allows multiple molding cycles; improves molding efficiency in many processes including injection, compression and transfer molding.

Improved Appearance – reduces defects caused by sticking; nontransferable to elastomer compound; does not interfere with compound chemistry.

Environmentally Recommended – contains no Class I or Class II ozone depleting substances; contains no 1,1,1 trichloroethane or methylene chloride.

LORD<sup>®</sup> LokRelease™ 100EZ Mold Release

fast curing, nontransferable release agent

Features and Benefits

Process Enhancer – provides quick, easy part release from molds; single application allows multiple molding cycles; improves molding efficiency in many processes including injection, compression and transfer molding.

Improved Appearance – reduces defects caused by sticking; nontransferable to elastomer compound; does not interfere with compound chemistry.

Environmentally Recommended – contains no Class I or Class II ozone depleting substances; contains no chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) or hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) propellants; contains no 1,1,1 trichloroethane or methylene chloride.

LORD<sup>®</sup> LokRelease™ 200 Aqueous Mold Release

aqueous mold release is designed for use with molded elastomers

Features and Benefits

Process Enhancer – provides quick, easy part release; produces low build-up, allowing more production time between mold cleanings; improves molding efficiency in many processes including injection, compression and transfer molding.

Improved Appearance – reduces defects caused by sticking; nontransferable, eliminating post-finishing problems.

Environmentally Recommended – water-based coating is engineered to prevent rust and corrosion in steel molds.
