New safety-first adhesives with uncompromised performance

Under its flagship brand Loctite, Henkel is introducing a new adhesive for the assembly of small components and quick maintenance repairs as well as highlighting several products with new capabilities. These developments span different technologies but a key focus will be on instant component bonding and the launch of a new ultra-performance cyanoacrylate adhesive, Loctite 402. 

This new addition and a series of upgrades in this range allow industry to take full advantage of the technology’s potential to simplify design, improve reliability and increase productivity while also enhancing occupational safety.

Loctite 402 is Henkel’s new instant adhesive which it claims develops handling strength twice as fast on most substrates by comparison with other assembly solutions (3 – 10 seconds). This single component product also remains three times stronger on most metals at temperatures up to 150°C and offers sustained hot strength performance on selected metals at 135°C. This is a big benefit for products whose power supply and connectivity generate a lot of heat.

This new adhesive also sets an important new health and safety milestone for instant adhesives. Its patented formula contains more globally accepted raw materials to enhance worker and workplace safety. specifically, this new addition and others that will feature at the show, have a novel stabiliser package that removes the need for ingredients that have recently come under greater regulatory scrutiny. Henkel says this breakthrough, in combination with the other technical advancements, makes Loctite instant bonding a desirable alternative to other fastening methods in an even greater number of manufacturing environments.
