March 18, 2014—LORD Corporation’s new body shop applied Visible Light Cured Over Hem Sealer has officially hit the market, the company announced Monday.

Developed for OEM assembly plants, LORD Corporation’s Visible Light Cured Over Hem Sealer, Versilok 500 VLC, is a room temperature two-component (2K) acrylic material used to prevent corrosion on the exposed edge of hemming closures such as hoods, doors, lift gates and deck lids. The product solution provides corrosion protection and aesthetics, and has significant ergonomic advantages for difficult to reach profile applications, the company said.

According to Charmaine Riggins, automotive industry global marketing & business development director at LORD Corporation, “LORD Visible Light Cured Over Hem Sealer will change the way of sealing the vehicle, while providing economical and ergonomic benefits to the assembly of a vehicle. Unlike UV curable technologies experienced in the industry, Versilok 500 VLC technology requires no shielding and can be safely used and applied in a production environment.”
