Swift®lock 2U340 is a single-component, fully reactive hot melt adhesive that cross-links through a chemical reaction with moisture found in the surrounding air and substrates, to produce a thermoset adhesive. 2U340 was specifically formulated for difficult to bond plastics, such as ABS and vinyl, to a wide variety of metals. 2U340 was designed to provide a good balance of properties. The rheology of the product gives excellent release from roll coaters and no stringing of adhesive. The open time of three minutes is sufficient for assembly of a wide variety of applications. Green strength development of greater than 50 psi in 15 seconds holds difficult substrates together after combining. Long term aging studies show excellent retention of adhesive properties.

Application and Cleaning Information
  • Product is ready-to-use as received; do not dilute hot melt adhesive.
  • Confirm compatibility before making hot melt adhesive changes.
  • To clean up spilled adhesive, allow the adhesive to cool to room temperature and scrape off heavy deposits with a putty knife. Any uncured residual film may be wiped clean with a common polyurethane solvent (toluene, MEK). Clean up the adhesive before it cures.

Safety & Health

Safety and Disposal
  • Use with local exhaust ventilation to remove MDI (isocyanate) vapors anywhere heated product is exposed to air including adhesive un-loaders, pre-melters, and application areas. Local exhaust ventilation may be required to maintain exposures at safe levels.
  • Users of reactive hot melt polyurethane adhesives should maintain an ongoing industrial hygiene program which should include employee training, monitoring of MDI levels, and ongoing verification of ventilation system performance.
