LORD CORP.: Aqueous Coating

October 17, 2011

A new aqueous, NMP (N-methylpyrrolidone)-free weatherstrip coating is now available. Autoseal® 3500F is designed for use on dense EPDM glass run channel applications where abrasion and chemical resistance are required. The coating offers low coefficient of friction, excellent glass drag properties and non-stick features to glass. In addition, it reportedly reduces the squeak and itch noise that often results from automobile vibration and is problematic in many vehicles.

“Autoseal 3500F is the next generation of Autoseal 3500, a previous best practice product in the automotive weatherstrip market,” said Todd Wallis, Automotive marketing manager, Americas, at LORD Corp. “The ‘F’ version continues to provide excellent performance properties and has the added benefit of being NMP free, a key need for European suppliers.”
