Metalcolour Metal Binder
When strength matters – coated steel and coated aluminium
Metal Binder is an adhesive making it possible to bond materials like rubber to steel, rubber to aluminum and plastics to metal surfaces. In an industrialized process the adhesive is applied to sheet metal providing excellent adhesive properties. The adhesive properties in the binder are activated by heating to temperatures between 100 and 130 °C before coating or molding rubber or plastics onto the metal.
Any piece of shaped sheet metal being molded onto or coated by either plastic or rubber most likely needs some kind of adhesives to secure durability and overall performance. Parts with sound or vibration reducing properties and especially moving parts covered with rubber or plastics have a need for metal binders to secure long term adhesion.
These binders are often applied by either spray painting (robotics or hand) or in many cases coated by dipping. Both processes are labour intensive and require expensive equipment. High levels of production waste and environmental issues also make these processes very costly.
