LORD® Structural Adhesives for Service Trucks

Lowering fuel cost, wind drag, and reducing greenhouse gases has become an important component in the manufacturing of truck bodies. With LORD® structural adhesives, you can replace welding and fastening which saves cost, labor, and cycle times. Several trial applications have been performed, and results have shown that the bond of structural adhesives are stronger and eliminate concerns of corrosion and leakage. LORD® offers a variety of acrylic, epoxy, and urethane adhesives designed for auto body assembly and metal bonding.

Structural adhesives can be a tool to help configure work truck equipment and aftermarket upfitting. Applications can range from installation of tool boxes in construction trucks, shelf hanging for delivery vehicles, plumbing equipment for firetrucks, to electrical components in utility vehicles. Having the ability to customize your vehicle will improve workflow patterns and increase productivity and efficiency. Many of these specialty vehicle manufacturers are making the switch to adhesives. With the help of an experienced field application engineer, Ellsworth Adhesives can assist you with product selection and implementing a new production process.
