Tough, Surface Insensitive Loctite® Instant Adhesive Resists Heat and Humidity
Henkel Corporation has announced recent improvements to Loctite® 4204™ Prism® Instant adhesive, a surface insensitive cyanoacrylate adhesive that is toughened with elastomers to deliver enhanced flexibility and improved heat and humidity resistance. Thermally resistant Loctite® 4204™ Prism® provides excellent hot strength and heat aging properties up to 250°F.
The reformulation of Loctite® 4204™ Prism® has resulted in faster, more consistent cure times throughout its shelf-life, and the ability to bond a wider variety of surfaces. The high-viscosity adhesive bonds well to plastics, rubbers and metals. Loctite® 4204™ Prism® is available in a 20 gram bottle recently redesigned to provide better flow control, greater accuracy and reduced operator fatigue. For larger volume applications, the product is also available in 1 lb bottles. Loctite® 4204™ Prism® can be used in a range of industrial bonding applications including the assembly of loudspeakers, automotive components, electrical equipment, and oil filters.
LoctiteÒ Instant Adhesives deliver fast, strong solutions for high speed assembly, challenging applications, and demanding end use environments. The adhesives offer excellent results on a variety of substrates including plastics, elastomers and metals. General purpose, light curing, high temperature-resistant, toughened, low odor/low bloom, and flexible formulations are also available.
