LORD® 312 adhesive is a general purpose, low viscosity, two-component epoxy adhesive system used for applications, such as potting and thin fi lm encapsulation, that require an adhesive with good fl ow characteristics. This adhesive system provides excellent adhesion to prepared metals, thermosets, wood, prepared rubber and other materials. LORD 312 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 Friendly –contains no solvent, nonfl ammable and virtually odorless
Environmentally Resistant – resists moisture, sunlight and weathering
Temperature Resistant–performs at temperatures from -30 to +250°F (-34 to +121°C)
Chemically Resistant– resists dilute acids, alkalis, solvents, greases and oils.
Excellent Engineering Properties –provides low shrinkage, good creep properties, fully insulating and low water absorption.
Surface Preparation–Remove soil, grease, oil, fi ngerprints, 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 modifi er to fl ash off before applying LORD 312 adhesive. Prime glass and ceramic surfaces with LORD AP-134 adhesion enhancer/surface modifi er to promote adhesion.
Handle prepared surfaces carefully to avoid contamination. Assemble as soon as possible.
