Posted on 7/16/2019 9:12:12 AM By ASC

The adhesive & sealant industry is ramping up production to meet the growing demand for adhesive and sealant solutions for the electric vehicle market. Lord Corporation, for instance, has cited being closer to the burgeoning European electric vehicle manufacture market as one of the major reasons for its recent decision to invest $16 million in expanding operations at its German facility.

The adhesives and coating manufacturer, which already produces a number of products for the EV industry, plans to expand its development and production still further, while at the same time cutting its end costs. 

Lord currently produces structural adhesives and thermal management materials for batteries and battery packs, chargers and inverters. It also develops speciality adhesives for suspension components, and for weather stripping of doors and windows.
