Urethane Adhesive Has A Quick Cure

LORD Corporation’s LORD® 7800 fast cure urethane adhesive is designed for engineered thermoplastics, e-coated metals, powder painted surfaces, coated metals, composites, and SMC. Reportedly, the adhesive will help manufacturers reduce bond and assembly time, particularly in the transportation sector.


Traditional urethanes cure and build up strength slowly, forcing manufacturers to wait for the assemblies to cure to a sufficient strength to perform the next operation in their manufacturing process. Currently, it can take 3-12 hours for a traditional urethane to reach the necessary state to drill, cut, machine and/or add other components to the assembly. In contrast, the LORD 7800 family cures quickly, reaching those usable strengths often within an hour or less with no odor or flammability issues like competing acrylics.
