The adhesive challenge? It is difficult for most adhesives to bond to low surface energy materials. It’s no secret that low-surface energy materials are hard to stick to, so Mactac’s adhesive engineers have designed our Macbond ™ LSE427 acrylic adhesive to provide superior performance on low-surface-energy substrates.
A high performance 100% solids acrylic adhesive innovation, LSE427 is aggressive and performs great on challenging substrates like thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polypropylene and most foam materials, including open- and closed-cell foam constructions.
It’s a plastic world!
But why? High-performance plastics, known as thermoplastics, offer manufacturers a variety of benefits:
- Lower cost - one plastic part can replace multiple metal parts, a plastic part is easier to machine down to exact specifications and a plastic part is resistant to corrosion.
- Light weight – demand for fuel efficiency has forced manufacturers to create lighter weight vehicles and aircraft.
- Easily modified – plastics can be infused with materials such as glass or carbon fiber to change performance properties or increase strength.
It takes a special kind of adhesive to get the job done — MacBond LSE427 Acrylic Tapes by Mactac are ideal for applications such as gaskets, insulation bonding, general mounting, automotive, foam bonding, point-of-purchase signage, nameplates and building and construction. Featuring excellent chemical and UV resistance and the ability to customize with one or two liners!
