Adhesives, sealants & functional coatings
15 January 2020
At Southern Manufacturing 2020 Henkel will demonstrate how its latest generation Loctite, Bonderite, Technomelt and Teroson products can benefit the entire value chain. Whether the task is in system building, assembly or repair, these engineering adhesives, sealants and functional coatings improve performance and cut costs.
Core technologies including threadlocking, sealing, gasketing, retaining, instant and structural bonding, will be demonstrated using the latest product introductions. Regardless of which substrates are chosen and the conditions that prevail, if it’s technically possible, Henkel can provide the most appropriate solution.
Its range of adhesives incorporate five core technologies – epoxies, acrylics, polyurethanes, silane modified polymers and silicones. Continuous development across the range has now led to products that are more tolerant of contamination, able to support a wider range of operating temperatures and therefore be applied to a greater number of tasks.
As a result of these ongoing developments, adhesive technology is being widely adopted across all engineering sectors to improve the performance and longevity of products, as well as allow dissimilar materials to be joined to reduce overall weight and energy consumption.
Henkel will also focus on the merits of its Universal Structural Bonders. Based on Henkel’s Hybrid Technology these products massively extend the scope of application for structural adhesives in both design and repair. They harness the strengths of different adhesive technologies to provide a unique combination of characteristics. Currently four different adhesives complete this range, each with its own distinguishing features and benefits
Across the board, how products are applied significantly influences their overall performance and cost efficiency. This is why Henkel will again be emphasising its expertise in the design and supply of dispensing equipment. The choice ranges from manual through to fully automatic and standard to bespoke.
