Lord Adhesive Approved for New F-150
March 14, 2014—LORD Fusor 108B, a metal bonding adhesive, has been recommended by the Ford Motor Company for use in repairing the 2015 Ford F-150’s aluminum cab, LORD announced on Friday.
This new F-150, unveiled in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, will require adhesive in nearly all joints in the cab. Ford will be listing specific repair procedures in the collision repair manual along with instructions that will be provided with service parts.
Gerry Bonanni at Ford Motor Company’s Paint and Body Technology Center stated that the procedures developed are easy to follow and can be performed by any body shop that performs collision repairs on F-150 trucks today.
“The approved adhesives are widely available and training will be available by I-CAR to assist technicians with this mainstream repair process,” said Bonnani.
Ford will present information on the 2015 F-150 and aluminum repair at the AASP/NJ Northeast on March 21–23 in Secaucus, N.J. Additional details will be presented at the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) April 9–10 in Portland, Ore.; NACE CARS 2014 July 31–Aug. 2 in Detroit, Mich.; and at the SEMA Show Nov. 4–7 in Las Vegas.
