Versilok® 253/254 Adhesive Where to Buy

Product Information

LORD Versilok® 253/254 adhesive is a two-component, epoxy-modified acrylic adhesive used to bond a variety of automotive sheet metals, including hot-dip galvanized, electro-galvanized, bare aluminum, and cold rolled steel. Versilok 253/254 adhesive can be either room temperature cured or heat cured for faster processing.

Glass beads are included in the adhesive system providing a mechanical lock between substrates. Versilok 253/254 adhesive is approved by General Motors Corporation (3639M) and Ford Motor Company (ESB-M2G347-A).

Shelf Life

Shelf life is six months from date of shipment when stored at 25°C (77°F) in original, unopened container.

Features and Benefits

Strong Mechanical Lock – contains glass beads which provide a mechanical lock that will prevent shifting of substrate panels.

Easy to Apply – utilizes non-sagging rheology; replaces the need for spot welding which degrades metal and allows rusting to occur.

Low Temperature Cure – develops a high strength bond in less than one hour at room temperature, eliminating metal warpage caused by high curing induction temperatures. Induction heating should be conducted at 110°C (230°F) or below.

Bonds Unprepared Metals – bonds exceptionally well through the various stamping lubricants typically present on metals, eliminating the need for advance cleaning and surface preparation.

Environmentally Resistant – provides excellent resistance to moisture, sunlight, salt spray and thermal cycling; sustains short exposure to postbakes up to 204°C (400°F).
