Choosing the Best Combination | Elastomer Bonding Basics

In 1956, LORD Corporation commercialized a Chemlok® primer and covercoat system that produced elastomer tearing bonds with virtually all commercially available elastomers. This jump in technology provided a broad processing latitude for elastomer rubber-to-metal bonding and drastically reduced scrap levels. Continuing research at LORD Corporation has produced a growing line of elastomer bonding formulations that can accommodate all commercially available elastomers, diverse metals and rigid plastic substrates. When bonding elastomers, there are many considerations, including your elastomer or elastomer blend, physical properties, and part design.
