Lorin's AnoGrip Anodized Aluminum Well-Suited For Insulated Metal Panels
Muskegon, MI - Lorin Industries, Inc., a global industry leader in the innovation and production of coil anodized aluminum, highlights its AnoGrip anodized aluminum product that accepts all types of adhesives without the
need for primer or pre-treatment. This finish is ideal for manufacturing applications where adhesion or lamination come into play, including insulated metal panels (IMPs).
Through a special anodized process, AnoGrip creates an adhesion-promoting surface on both sides of the aluminum sheet. The chemical process, refined by Lorin, increases the surface area - allowing stronger bonds to be created with an adhesive between
the aluminum and other materials to help prevent delamination. It was noted by Lorin that "T-Peel test results for AnoGrip far exceed other priming methods such as scuffing the aluminum, grit blast, or chromate conversion coating."
The bondable surface created by AnoGrip Type 4 accepts many substrates such as resin soaked papers, MDG board, MDF, Plywood, PVC, and several other bonding substrates. AnoGrip Type 5 also accepts many substrates in addition to paint.
According to Lorin, "AnoGrip’s ability to accept all types of adhesives precludes the need to apply a primer coat or the need to treat the surface with Hexavalent Chrome, a known carcinogen, saving manufacturers time and money, and increasing safety
and sustainability. The superior adhesion also means that manufacturers can potentially use less of their costly adhesives, with better results in terms of preventing delamination. This saves manufacturers on warranty claims and saves their customers
on down time for repairs."
