Using LORD® structural adhesives to bond truck bodies during manufacturing, rather than welding or fastening, can reduce labor costs and cycle time. In addition LORD adhesives increase throughput, reduce material costs and weight and improve strength. What makes us different is our exceptional technical support dedicated to ensure your every design need is met. Our adhesives bond to various substrates including coated, painted, bare metal substrates, plastics and composites. We offer multiple cure speeds to fit your application requirements. We also offer glass beads for bondline control to prevent over-clamping.

One adhesive application to consider is the manufacturing of door closures.

Door Closures

Door closures can be one of the most challenging features for manufacturing quality and aesthetics. Fortunately, we have the proficiency to help reduce or replace welding frames thus creating a more cost effective and aesthetically pleasing final product.
