MATERIALS: LORD Corp. has introduced a new high-performance aqueous primer and covercoat adhesive for bonding during vulcanization to metal.
LORD Chemlok® 8212 adhesive is designed for use over Chemlok 8008 Primer. Chemlok 8008 primer helps to ensure environmental resistance of the bonded assembly and adhesion to the substrate. Chemlok 8212 will bond a variety of elastomers to primed metal during vulcanization.
In addition to bonding to various natural and synthetic elastomers, Chemlok 8212 adhesive will also bond to cold-rolled steel, phosphatized steel, aluminum and other various substrates.
The environmentally resistant adhesive provides excellent resistance to hostile environments including salt water and heat. The adhesive and primer are ready to use directly out of the container without dilution and are not prone to settling. The primer is environmentally friendly because it is formulated with low VOCs and HAPs for reduced emissions, allowing for a safer work environment and regulatory compliance. It can function for many materials such as steel, phosphated steel, nylon, aluminum and brass.
