Acrylic Adhesives

LORD acrylic bonding structural adhesives are proven to bond to bare metals, composites and a large number of thermoplastic materials. The combination of excellent cure kinetics at room temperature and minimal need for surface preparation, make acrylic adhesives the ideal choice for both automated and manual assembly processes.

What are Acrylic Adhesives?

A key property of acrylic adhesives is that they can have a long room temperature open time but once they begin to react, they quickly reach handling strength. 

The viscosity of acrylic bonding adhesives allow for very easy dispensing by hand while maintaining a non-sag characteristic. Also, acrylic adhesives change color during cure, giving a visual indication that the adhesives is cured. Another key property of acrylic adhesives is that they can have a long room temperature open time but once they begin to react, they quickly reach handling strength. Other adhesive chemistries are not able to match this cure profile. LORD acrylic adhesives offer outstanding toughness that delivers impact resistance, excellent low- and high-temperature performance and long service life.
