FUSOR 10813/109B & FUSOR 111 B
MEET NEW GM SPECIFICATION GM6449G
FOR BONDING OF METAL BODY PANELS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE AFTER MARKET
General Motors is the first OEM to issue an aftermarket materials specification for metal panel bonding as an alternative to welding. Fusor 108B1109B Metal Bonding Adhesives (Medium-Set) and Fusor 111 B Metal Patch Panel Adhesive Bondline Control (Fast Set), manufactured by Lord Corporation, are currently the only adhesives that meet or exceed these requirements. Furthermore, these Fusor products met the specification without use of an anti-corrosion etch primer.
Material specification GM6449G, titled "Automotive (Metallic) Panel Bonding Performance Guidelines for After Market Service Use", is intended to outline performance guidelines of structural adhesives used to repair metal automotive bodies in the aftermarket. The specification notes that these adhesives are "intended to be used to bond replacement body panels (door, deck lid, hood and roof skins) as "an option to welding as the attachment means".
Lord Corporation suggests that Fusor 108B1109B be used for non-structural secondary panel replacement of door skins, roof skins, quarter panels and rear body panels. Fusor 108B1109B has successfully been crash tested to FMVSS 208 and 301 and the entire line of FUSOR Metal Bonding Adhesives are covered by a Lifetime Guarantee for bond integrity and no corrosion when used in conjunction with Fusor Repair Procedures (FRP'S). Fusor 108B/109B are available in 225m/50m1 cartridges.
