Loctite goes for speed and depth
Loctite 5610 is a new two-part, fast curing silicone adhesive designed for bonding glass, metals, ceramics and most plastics and elastomers. In many cases, there is no need for surface preparation. It provides excellent hot strength up to 180degC, yet has the capability of resisting higher temperatures of up to 250degC for short term exposure.
Handling strength for Loctite 5610 is achieved within minutes.
"Traditionally, standard single part silicones are slow to cure, have limited cure through volume and their adhesion can be substrate dependant," explains Colin Chapman, marketing manager at Henkel, maker of Loctite brand products. "As well as fast curing, this new two part product has unlimited cure through volume, and gives good adhesion to a wide range of substrates without the need for a primer. Like all silicone products, Loctite 5610 is extremely flexible."
Typical uses for the new product include the bonding and sealing of glass and ceramic stove tops to appliance frames, securing brackets to back of stove tops, bonding glass to microwave oven doors and the sealing of washing machine drums.
