Reformulated adhesives

Henkel is reformulating all technologies, adhesives for bonding and sealing to provide new or improved characteristics to widen their scope of application.

One example is LOCTITE 518, which was introduced to overcome the problems associated with conventional pre-cut compression gaskets. This anaerobic adhesive can now cure through light surface contamination and works well on stainless steel and aluminium without an activator. It has also been made available in pen form, delivering the adhesive via a roller ball, making application easier, with no waste and less mess.

Another illustration of Henkel innovation is its patented hybrid technology that harnesses the strengths of different adhesive technologies to provide a unique combination of characteristics. It is the basis of the new generation LOCTITE Universal Structural Bonders that combine bond strength, speedy cure and durability.

Currently four different adhesives complete this range, each with its own distinguishing features and benefits. These bonders extend the scope of application for structural adhesives in both design and repair.
