LORD Maxlok MX/T18
LORD® Maxlok MX/T18 acrylic adhesives replace welding, brazing, riveting and other mechanical fastening methods especially over a wide range of temperature environments subject to high impact or high peel loads. LORD Maxlok acrylic adhesives are available in a range of working times to accommodate a wide variety of process requirements
Features and Benefits
Versatile– bonds a wide range of unprepared metals with minimal substrate preparation
Temperature Resistant – performs at temperatures from -40 to +300°F (-40 to +149°C)..
Environmentally Resistant – resists dilute acids, alkalis, solvents, greases, oils, moisture, salt spray and weathering; provides excellent resistance to indirect UV
Precise Bondline– allows precise control of adhesive bondline thickness due to its content of glass beads, 0.01" (0.025 cm) diameter.
Non-Sag–remains in position when applied on vertical or overhead surfaces, allowing for greater process flexibility.
Surface Preparation–Remove grease, loose contamination or poorly adhering oxides from metal surfaces. Normal amounts of mill oils and drawing compounds usually do not present a problem in adhesion. Most plastics require a simple cleaning before bonding. Some may require abrading for optimum performance.
Mixing – Mix LORD Maxlok T3, T6 or T18 adhesive with the proper amount of LORD Maxlok MX accelerator. Handheld cartridges will automatically dispense the correct volumetric ratio of each component. Even color distribution visually indicates a thorough mix. Once mixed, the adhesive cures rapidly.
