Lamination bonding to metal is used in many industries and applications to provide durable laminates in lightweight products. Metal laminates are used in many applications such as in automobiles, construction and building materials, and various consumer goods. Lamination bonding to metal allows for manufacturers to create durable products by bonding a polypropylene laminate film or core to a metal substrate such as steel or aluminum.
The type of adhesive used in the process for applying this laminate to metal adhesive is key in achieving optimum performance and long-lasting results of the end product.
Coil Coated Polypropylene Lamination Bonding Adhesive
Applying a high-quality industrial adhesive to a sheet of metal or aluminum prior to lamination and product forming with a coil coated process provides many benefits to manufacturers and consumers. Coil coated metal laminates have the adhesive applied in a consistent manner with better curing than other methods of application and significantly improve product quality.
High-performance industrial adhesives like uniBOND from UNICHEM are available with B-stage curing. This means the adhesive can be applied to the sheet of metal, rolled up and shipped to the manufacturer where the laminate is applied with a heat application process that permanently bonds the laminate to metal. Universal Chemicals & Coatings, Inc., UNICHEM, has been providing high-quality industrial adhesives and custom industrial coating solutions for more than 50 years.
