New Loctite® Adhesive is First of its Kind

Henkel introduces Loctite Universal T.A.C. Adhesive as first adhesive in North America with FlexTec Technology

The Loctite brand introduces Loctite Universal T.A.C. adhesive. Named for its versatile bonding capabilities, Loctite Universal T.A.C. adhesive is engineered for a wide range of applications and repairs where a high-strength bond is required; and its advanced bonding works in even the most difficult weather and temperature conditions. This revolutionary adhesive is recommended for use on a variety of materials including marble, domestic and exotic woods, mirrors, ferrous and non-ferrous metal, brick, glass, concrete and PVC.

The launch of this product is Henkel's first foray in to the North American adhesives market with Henkel's proprietary Flextec Technology. This urethane silane crosslinking technology is what enables Loctite Universal T.A.C. adhesive to be suitable for such a wide range of projects, in varying climate conditions, on multiple substrates. The adhesive is waterproof, UV resistant, paintable, and can even be applied on wet or dry surfaces. Loctite Universal T.A.C. adhesive provides high initial tack and a translucent bond line for professional results.

The revolutionary Loctite Universal T.A.C. Construction Adhesive is a high tack polymer-based technology that combines the best attributes of several products - clarity like a silicone, low-odor like a latex, waterproof like a solvent and strength like a polyurethane. Loctite Universal T.A.C. Construction Adhesive is available at retail locations for a suggested cost of $9.99 for a 10.1-ounce cartridge.

The Loctite brand offers a full range of premium-grade adhesives, from super glues to construction adhesives, that meet the needs of consumers and professionals. For more than 50 years, the brand has been solving projects with advanced, high-performance adhesive formulas and innovative dispensing systems.
