Right adhesive for highly durable bonds

New to Henkel LOCTITE Universal Structural Bonding range is LOCTITE HY 4060 GY.

This is described as a five-minute-curing, general-purpose repair adhesive for a wide variety of metals, plastics, wood and rubber materials.

What makes the product so special, says Henkel, is the company’s patented hybrid technology that, as well as providing universal adhesion, “achieves a fast cure through a large gap, excellent structural and environmental durability. It also has enhanced safety credentials”.

Clearly faster fixturing means greater productivity, an important benefit to maintenance engineers seeking efficiency gains from the products and systems they use. “As LOCTITE HY 4060 GY cures so quickly, in a wide range of operating conditions and even at low temperatures, it is the ideal choice for fast and effective repair,” Henkel adds. “It also has good gap-filling ability – up to 5mm – and provides excellent resistance to moisture, temperature extremes and chemicals.”

LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is billed as a true universal structural bonding adhesive, a single product suitable for multiple applications that eliminates the need for a choice of products to meet all maintenance bonding needs. “And by comparison with its nearest competitor LOCTITE HY 4060 GY offers significant advantages for multi-substrate bonding and far greater durability at elevated temperatures.”

This general-maintenance product is said to be particularly effective where a fast fixture is required on structures with variable gaps and mixed substrates. Typical applications range from bracket bonding and cable tie installation to the repair of plastic clips and lugs and the surface rebuilding of plastic and metal parts. LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is supplied in a 25ml, ready-to-use pack.
