Thanksgiving at Chemical Concepts

Monday, November 27, 2017 9:27:30 AM America/New_York

fallen autumn leavesAutumn is a season of seasonal changes.  The leaves turn into beautiful colors of gold and deep reds.   We observe Halloween which has many meanings in different areas as All Hallows Eve to Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with colorful costumes to celebrate.   As the days get colder and the leaves start to drop we prepare for Thanksgiving.   The history behind Thanksgiving goes back to 1621 as the first, when the Pilgrims shared a feast with Native Americans after they harvested crops, which occurred in October.  The holiday was proclaimed in the 1700’s with a Harvest Festival and in 1863 Abraham Lincoln proclaimed it as a federal holiday on the third week of every November.   So as tradition, families get together on this day to mark the beginning of the holiday season to feast on Turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, corn bread, vegetables of all sorts and desserts consisting of apple pie, pumpkin pie and other pastries.

At Chemical Concepts we asked our employees about their traditions on this holiday. A few shared their favorites.

  • Joanie said she has two dinners, the traditional Thanksgiving and on Friday she has a cousins reunion.  Her favorite side is her own cornbread stuffing.
  • Patty enjoys cranberry sauce and broccoli casserole.
  • Susan and Stacy will be celebrating with Stacy's parents which they do every year.   Both of them enjoy stuffing. This year Stacy will be preparing the string bean casserole and getting some dessert. 
  • Lydia splits Thanksgiving day and spends the early part of the day with her sister and her family then go to her brother-in-laws to share with her nieces and their respective families.
  • Stephanie's favorite side is candied yams.  The only real tradition is setting up the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving.

We do know that all of our employees shared time with their families.

As for all of us here at Chemical Concepts we wish that all enjoyed the holiday.

How Should Urethane Adhesives Be Stored?

Monday, November 20, 2017 8:36:29 AM America/New_York

Successful businesses invest in many, many products – and know that proper storage is key to make these products last as long as possible. Adhesives, specifically urethane adhesives, can be tricky to store well so that maximum effectiveness is preserved. We turned to our friends at LORD adhesives for some answers on proper storage of a few of their popular urethane adhesives.

How should LORD urethane adhesives be stored?

LORD urethanes are moisture sensitive. Cartridges should be left in their mylar bag with descant until ready for use. Protect partial cartridges from moisture exposure by leaving the nozzle in place to act as a seal after each use. For maximum shelf life, after opening bulk container, replace cap or lid as quickly as possible and purge with dry nitrogen, if available. Urethanes should be stored between 18°C -30°C (65°F -85 °F). If stored at these cooler temperatures, allow product to return to room temperature before using.

Spotlight on a Popular Urethane Adhesive from LORD

LORD 7150 adhesive LORD® 7150 adhesive is a two-part, high strength urethane adhesive used to bond cloth, paper, plastics, foams, rubber, painted metals and powder coated metals. LORD 7150-A resin is composed of isocyanate. LORD 7150-B curative is composed of polyol.

Seam Sealer Adhesives Proving Their Worth in Truck and Trailer Assembly

Monday, November 6, 2017 11:19:48 AM America/New_York

Manufacturers of commercial transportation equipment, like any manufacturer, are constantly looking for ways to construct consistently high-quality, durable products as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Many of these manufacturers are discovering that a secret to accomplish this goal with truck bodies and trailers is advanced structural adhesives and seam sealers.

Let’s take a look at the many benefits of using adhesives and sealants in truck and trailer assembly:

Noise, vibration and harshness improvements. Liquid-applied sound deadeners dampen vibration, rattles and noise in floor panels, underbodies and cabins. Sealants also provide a quieter ride by eliminating air gaps that can lead to annoying wind noise.

Corrosion protection. Sealants are especially formulated to prevent truck and trailer parts from corroding.

Improved structural integrity. Structural adhesives eliminate stress concentrations, diminish squeaks and rattles, and improve fatigue performance. Closure-panel and body-panel bonding have been trusted applications in the automotive market for more than three decades.

More attractive appearance. Truck and trailer bodies aren’t just functional on the roadways – they also serve as mobile billboards that promote products and services. Thus, having a rigs with a high-end appearance is a significant goal for manufacturers. Adhesives and sealants allow engineers to reduce the number of welds and fasteners needed to assemble truck and trailer bodies, leading to sleeker, more innovative designs.

Improved throughput. Structural adhesives allow manufacturers to bond and seal in one step, which shortens the assembly line layout.

One such seam sealer and adhesive that’s becoming especially popular with truck and trailer manufacturers is LORD 7610DTM.
