LORD Engineered Adhesives Sign Display and Kiosk Assembly Selector Guide ®

LORD Engineered Adhesives offer advantages over welding and mechanical fastening. They bond dissimilar materials, provide improved appearance, insulate against galvanic corrosion and offer excellent environmental resistance. Adhesive bonding provides cost savings due to reduced labor costs and assembly time.

The chart below is just a guide for choosing the proper adhesive for sign bonding applications. For more detailed information on these adhesives and surface preparation, call the LORD Customer Support Center.

xx – Represents numbers for the family of adhesives to be utilized. Contact LORD Customer Support Center. NOTE: “DRW” means dry rag wipe. This preparation process simply cleans dust from a surface. “Scuff” means to use an abrasive pad to lightly rub the surface of the substrate. This roughens the surface slightly, improving adhesion. “SW” means solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Contact a LORD representative for recommendations. Each substrate and adhesive should be tested for the specific use in which it will be expected to perform. The information reported here is from laboratory studies and is intended only to provide general information regarding the ability of material to be bonded with LORD® Engineered Adhesives. Other substrates or grades of substrates from these and other suppliers may not have been evaulated for adhesion. If you need to bond a substrate that is not on this list, call your substrate supplier or LORD Customer Support Center.

LORD PRODUCT SELECTOR GUIDE Surface Preparation

Cautionary Information

All surfaces should be clean and free from oil, grease and dirt. As a minimum, wipe surface with a clean, dry rag or blow off surface with clean air.

Before using this or any LORD product, refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) and label for safe use and handling instructions.

Solvent wipe all surfaces with isopropyl alcohol. Do not use lacquer thinners, mineral spirits, gasoline, toluene or xylene as they may leave a residue that may cause bonding problems. Do not use commercial cleaners. These often leave a residue that may cause bonding problems.

For industrial/commercial use only. Must be applied by trained personnel only. Not to be used in household applications. Not for consumer use.

Substrate Surface Preparation Steel/Aluminum – Solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Stainless Steel – Solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Then, mechanically abrade with 80-grit paper or grinder. Wipe with isopropyl alcohol to remove sanding dust. Pre-finished Metal – Factory-painted metal with baked polyester finish can be solvent wiped. Shop-painted or other finishes must be removed by sanding prior to bonding. Acrylic – Scuff with scuff pad or 120-grit paper. Solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Polycarbonate – Solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. PETG – Solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Trimcap – Wipe with clean, dry cloth. Urethane Foam Board – Blow off surface with clean air or wipe with clean, dry cloth. Sintra® – Scuff with scuff pad or 120-grit paper. Solvent wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Ceramic and Stone – Porous: No primer required. Non-porous (Smooth/polished): LORD AP-134 primer required. Wood – Wipe with clean, dry cloth. Glass – LORD AP-134 primer required.
