Many challenges, one solution

Henkel has developed a new range of universal structural bonders whose many attributes have been achieved through new, patented hybrid technology.

This innovative approach substantially extends the application scope of these adhesives, while delivering improved health and safety benefits, stated the company.

The general-purpose universal structural bonders combine the qualities of different adhesives to achieve bond strength, fast fixture speed and durability. “They provide improved performance on a variety of substrates, and the versatility to solve many more maintenance and repair challenges,” said Henkel. “Formulated specifically for application in harsh factory and plant environments, they are effective in a wide variety of operating conditions, from temperature extremes to high vibration.

“The new LOCTITE HY 4070 provides a good example of what these qualities mean to maintenance engineers seeking methods to optimise efficiency and reduce costs, while keeping plant running smoothly and safely. It provides ultra-fast fixturing and bond strength on most plastics or plastic/metal combinations and also on rubber materials.”

LOCTITE HY 4070 is described as one product for multiple applications, simplifying the adhesive selection process, reducing inventory and the need for storage. “Although suitable for the lion’s share of applications where a 60-second fixture is required, it is particularly good where variable gaps up to 5mm between mixed substrates are involved,” added Henkel.

Typical applications include the tacking and temporary location of parts before permanent fixture through to emergency repair of moulded plastics or metal parts and rebuilding plastic lugs and mounts. The product is supplied in a 10ml ready-to-use pack.
