Bonding instead of sewing

Lohmann’s structural bonding films - the new bonding partner who successfully bond high-tech materials.

To date, sewing has dominated the textile world as a joining process. Each needle stitch however damages the mechanical properties of the material; the permeability and elasticity are altered. Therefore, new bonding partners are required in order to successfully bond these high-tech materials.

This is where the latently reactive adhesive systems from Lohmann come into play. The polyurethane bonding films, so-called Superior Bonding Films (DuploTEC SBF), not only meet the high safety and environmental demands of modern industry, but also offer the user enormous freedom of design - even for the bonding of very small surfaces.

Topaz technology

The "Topaz" technology is particularly suitable for textile applications. Behind this technology lie adhesive films that already crosslink at low temperatures and short cycle times and are therefore particularly suitable for rapid bonding. The "Topaz" products are already activated from 70°C upwards and can therefore provide reliable and lasting bonds. By means of the reactive crosslinking mechanism it is also possible to achieve temperature and aging-resistant bonds for large and small surfaces.
