Henkel Announces Expanded Line Of Loctite® Structural Adhesives

Stronger, Tougher and More Reliable Than Fasteners and Welds

Henkel Corporation has expanded its line of Loctite® Structural Adhesives to include approximately 50 products in a range of technologies.  Loctite® Structural Adhesives are designed to provide tough, durable bonds on a variety of substrates and to deliver stronger, tougher, more reliable bonds than traditional fasteners or welding. 

All five Loctite® Structural Adhesive technologies distribute stresses evenly over the joint area and deliver a stronger, more durable assembly.  Structural adhesives eliminate or reduce costly mechanical fasteners or welds, and minimize the cost and weight of the final assembly.   Adhesives will not detract from the aesthetics of the end product, and offer excellent resistance in severe operating environments.  Application and curing can be easily automated, speeding production and reducing labor costs.   These materials fill large gaps between parts and are capable of bonding dissimilar materials such as metals to plastics.

Designed for metal bonding, magnet bonding, multiple surface bonding and plastic/composite bonding, Loctite® Structural Adhesives are available in a range of formulations including one-part epoxies, two-part epoxies, acrylics, and polyurethanes. 

Loctite® Structural Adhesives are available in easy-to-use packages for hand-held, manual and automated applications.  Loctite® also offers a full-line of high quality dispensing equipment.  Loctite® brand Structural Adhesives are rewriting the Laws of Structural Engagement™.
