Henkel un­veils first hy­brid ad­he­sive

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PROD­UCT WATCH - www.demm.co.nz/reader-en­quiry #141202b

Henkel Aus­tralia has in­tro­duced Loc­tite 4090, an in­no­va­tive hy­brid ad­he­sive that com­bines the most crit­i­cal at­tributes of struc­tural and in­stant ad­he­sives – bond strength and speed.

This pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion pro­vides high im­pact re­sis­tance, high strength bond­ing on a va­ri­ety of sub­strates, and high tem­per­a­ture re­sis­tance, mak­ing it ver­sa­tile enough to solve a wide range of de­sign and assem­bly chal­lenges.

Loc­tite 4090 ad­he­sive greatly ex­pands the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of tra­di­tional ad­he­sives and opens the door to new ap­pli­ca­tions and new so­lu­tions. As the first hy­brid ad­he­sive, it de­liv­ers the speed of a cyanoacry­late and the strength of an epoxy.

“The in­dus­try is un­der pres­sure to be more com­pet­i­tive, to re­duce man­u­fac­tur­ing costs and to look for new de­sign and assem­bly so­lu­tions,” said Henkel’s Mike Quail, VP mar­ket­ing, gen­eral in­dus­try.

“Loc­tite 4090 has been de­signed to reach be­yond con­ven­tional in­dus­try ap­proaches. It is the first ad­he­sive of its kind. Never be­fore has there been a hy­brid ad­he­sive de­signed to tackle the most chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tions.”

The hy­brid ad­he­sive of­fers high qual­ity per­for­mance in ex­treme en­vi­ron­ments and chal­leng­ing con­di­tions. Its features and ben­e­fits in­clude tem­per­a­ture re­sis­tance up to 150°C, high im­pact and vi­bra­tion re­sis­tance, high mois­ture re­sis­tance, and gap filling up to 5 mm. It is well suited to a va­ri­ety of sub­strates, in­clud­ing me­tals, most plas­tics and rub­bers.

The prod­uct is avail­able as a 50ml car­tridge in a car­ton with five mix noz­zles. It should be dis­pensed with the stan­dard Loc­tite 50ml dual car­tridge manual ap­pli­ca­tor, which must be or­dered sep­a­rately.
