Fusionbond 372

One of the most important safety features that a vehicle can offer is structural integrity. The impact resistance of the structural adhesive used to build these vehicles is critical and a necessary feature. Hernon Fusionbond 372 offers the highest impact resistance (more than double of other structural adhesives), superior bond to a wide selections of substrates including metals, fiberglass, wood, rubber and ceramics with minimal surface preparation requirements. The advanced environmental resistant properties of Fusionbond 372 make it ideal for any manufactured component that can benefit from structural integrity. This product offers superior sheer strength, environmental resistance and halogen free chemistry for the electronic manufacturing industry.

Primo Protein Adhesive

What we have found in the rigid box and laminating industries is that our customers have been having a hard time with some of their more difficult substrates. Substrates such as Mylar, foil, soft touch film laminations, etc. have historically been difficult to bond. It was our mission to manufacture an adhesive for this industry problem and we have found a solution.

Our technical department has developed a protein adhesive to improve adhesion to soft touch film laminations. Soft touch film laminations normally have a low surface dyne levels that can make it difficult to adhere the back of the film laminations to the face of the film laminations using a protein adhesive. For those challenging materials, our NW160 is a new modified protein adhesive that machines well and develops tack during application while improving the overall final bond. Along with film laminations, we have other versions of our Primo adhesives that will bond excellently with other difficult substrates as well.

The two main issues we have seen from our customers is the bubbling of the finished product which has caused much added stress because people would have to physically rub down the boxes to prevent this. L.D. Davis’s Primo adhesives have reduced that. The other issue was pop-ups. We were finding that other adhesives were not adhering wrap-to-wrap. Our Primo adhesives have reduced that issue as well.

Advantages of new Primo Adhesives: Eco-friendly (biodegradable), machines clean, reduces bubbling on finished product, quick tack during application.
