A reformable epoxy adhesive film

News International-French

20 Oct 2014

L&L Products, a global applied engineering & materials science company, launches a reformable epoxy adhesive film which combines the adhesion and mechanical properties of an epoxy with the processing ease of a thermoplastic.

The new film aims to facilitate manufacture of composite parts, panels and laminates.

With a tensile elongation of 40%, the reformable epoxy adhesive film is a tough product and has good strength and adhesion in comparison with traditional thermoplastic adhesive systems.

The L-F610 has the ability to adhere to different substrates such as metals, epoxy composites, plastics and wood, and it can also be used for a range of dissimilar substrate bonding applications.

It can be de-bonded and re-formed allowing parts and components to be modified in existing structures. It is also dry-to-the-touch and transparent, making it usable for applications where a good cosmetic finish is required.

Unlike epoxy thermoset film adhesives, L-F610 does not require refrigerated storage and has a long shelf life.

In order to explore further applications for this new product, L&L Products has formed a relationship with Hardwire LLC, a leading US-based, composite component producer.
