LORD® 310 adhesive is a modified, thixotropic, twocomponent epoxy adhesive system used to bond many types of prepared metals, prepared rubber, urethane and plastics. Originally formulated for primerless adhesion to SMC, LORD 310 adhesive is used to bond disk drives, down-hole oil field equipment, automotive body panels and spoilers, and vibration damping mounts. LORD 310 adhesive can be either room temperature cured or heat cured for faster processing.
Features and Benefits
Durable– provides load bearing properties equal to or greater than the materials being bonded.
Environmentally Recommended –contains no solvent, nonflammable and virtually odorless.
Environmentally Resistant – resists moisture, sunlight, salt spray and thermal cycling.
Temperature Resistant– performs at temperatures from -40 to +400°F (-40 to +204°C); resists postbakes up to 400°F (204°C); resists outgassing up to 225°F (107°C).
Chemically Resistant– resists dilute acids, alkalis, solvents, oils and hydrocarbons; anti-corrosion processes including phosphatizing and ELPO (e-coat) coatings do not affect adhesive or its bond strength.
Excellent Engineering Properties– provides low shrinkage, good creep properties and low water absorption.
Surface Preparation–Remove soil, grease, oil, fingerprints, dust, mold release agents, rust and other contaminants from the surfaces to be bonded by solvent degreasing or alkaline cleaning.
On metal surfaces which are free of oxidation, use an isopropyl alcohol wipe. If necessary, use an abrasive material to remove tarnish. Always follow abrasion by a second cleaning to ensure removal of loose particles.
When bonding cured rubber, allow LORD 7701 adhesion enhancer/surface modifier to flash off before applying LORD 310 adhesive. Prime glass and ceramic surfaces with LORD AP-134 adhesion enhancer/surface modifier to promote adhesion.
Handle prepared surfaces carefully to avoid contamination. Assemble as soon as possible.
