LORD Maxlok™ MX/T18 Acrylic Adhesive Where To Buy

Product Information

LORD Maxlok™ MX/T18 acrylic adhesive replaces welding, brazing, riveting and other mechanical fastening methods especially over a wide range of temperature environments subject to high impact or high peel loads.

Shelf Life

Shelf life of each component is six months when stored at temperatures under 80°F (27°C) in original, unopened container. For maximum shelf life, storage temperatures of 40-50°F (4-10°C) are recommended. If stored at these cooler temperatures, allow product to return to room temperature before using. Protect from exposure to direct sunlight.

LORD Maxlok MX/T18 acrylic adhesive is flammable. Do not store or use near heat, sparks or open flame.

Features and Benefits

Versatile – bonds a wide range of unprepared metals with minimal substrate preparation.

Temperature Resistant – performs at temperatures from -40°F to +300°F (-40°C to +149°C).

Environmentally Resistant – resists dilute acids, alkalis, solvents, greases, oils, moisture, salt spray and weathering; provides excellent resistance to indirect UV exposure.

Precise Bondline – allows precise control of adhesive bondline thickness due to its content of glass beads, 0.01" (0.025 cm) diameter.

Non-Sag – remains in position when applied on vertical or overhead surfaces, allowing for greater process flexibility.
