Ultra high temperature sealants from Henkel
Specifically formulated for use in high temperature and high-pressure environments, Loctite NS 5540 and 5550 are sealing compounds that cure in the presence of heat to form a mechanical seal on metal-to-metal flanges and fittings. They are designed to allow for disassembly during routine maintenance (more...)
The dangers of “internet specification” of threaded fasteners
With all the benefits of the internet it has become apparent that there are dangers – who of us has not come across the life-critical disease “we have self-diagnosed” online, or the false news/conspiracy theory which can reinforce our worst fears? At a professional industrial (more...)

Smallest, highly effective handheld plasma treatment device
Adhesives specialist Intertronics presents what it claims is the world’s smallest plasma handheld device, the piezobrush PZ3. It efficiently uses cold atmospheric pressure plasma for the surface treatment of plastics, metals and natural materials. The plasma treatment activates, functionalises (more...)
Dispensing: what do we mean by accuracy and repeatability?
Adhesives dispensing products can be variously described as accurate, precise and/or repeatable, but what exactly do we mean by those terms? Here, Rachel Chancellor, Marketing Manager at adhesives specialist Intertronics, explains what dispensing accuracy and repeatability means for manufacturers. (more...)
Loctite thread locking underpins tram’s reliability
In the development of its new tram model, the TMK 2200, Croatian locomotive, tram and train builder, Končar, worked closely with Henkel’s engineering adhesive experts to select the best products for use in both assembly and maintenance. In the process Loctite products were identified that (more...)
Adhesives assure hydraulic systems’ reliability for 25 years
A gigantic Berg Propulsion propeller with a diameter of more than nine metres dwarfs the men standing next to it and at every stage of its manufacture, Loctite engineering adhesives from Henkel have an important part to play. Loctite threadlockers and thread sealants secure assemblies in the (more...)
Increase productivity: focus on outputs versus inputs
As the manufacturing industry approaches a ‘new normal’, the competitive landscape will see some changes, and those quick off the mark may gain an advantage. Here Rachel Chancellor, Marketing Manager at adhesives specialist Intertronics, explores how manufacturers can increase their (more...)
Over-specification of threaded fasteners
Ultimately, one can never know completely how a fastener will function in-situ until you try it which is why accelerated aging trials and extended excess load tests are frequently performed to ascertain a realistic safety margin. Guidelines from hard-won experience can normally be accessed, but (more...)
Challenge Ind Fasteners
Peter Swanson, managing director of Intertronics, explains the benefits of planetary centrifugal mixers and whether an atmospheric or vacuum type mixer is needed. There are many industrial processes which require fast mixing of liquids, pastes and powders, and where the uniformity and homogeneity (more...)
