Read our latest case study to learn how Modus Advanced, Inc. collaborated with LORD Corporation to solve difficult vibration and shock problems with advanced testing procedures and system re-engineering.
From time to time, while working as an Applications Engineer at LORD Corporation, I would get a call from a customer who was concerned the bond would fail on the vibration isolator mounts they were considering using. After all, a vibration mount is a rubber-to-metal bonded product in which an adhesive bonding process is used to manufacture it. I could easily see how this would be a concern, especially if someone doesn’t often deal with adhesives or is not familiar with the rubber-to-metal bonding process. During these conversations, when I point out LORD uses its Chemlok® adhesive in the bonding process, the customer is immediately reassured that the bond on a vibration isolation mount is most certainly not the weak link.

In this article we’re going to explore the typical 5 step process used to bond or vulcanize rubber to metal.

In my 34 years as a LORD engineer, the last 8 years being devoted to shock and vibration applications, I feel that I’ve seen and heard it all! During my tenure, I cared a lot about safety and stressed the importance of using vibration mounts that incorporate a “safetied” feature, as should you.
If you had called 877-ASK-LORD within the last several years, chances are you probably talked with me! Through my 34 years with LORD Corporation, I’ve had the opportunity to work as a Tool Engineer, designing all types of tooling used to manufacture LORD products; as a Product Engineer, providing design support to many of the LORD Industrial customers such as Caterpillar and John Deere; and most recently as an Application Engineer, providing technical support to LORD Industrial Distributors and their customers.
