Henkel launches safety-first adhesives at this year’s show

For the assembly of small components and quick maintenance repairs, Loctite 402 has been developed by Henkel and will be launched  at Southern Manufacturing 2022. The cyanoacrylate instant adhesive develops handling strength twice as fast on most substrates in comparison with other assembly solutions (3 – 10 seconds). This single component product also remains three times stronger on most metals at temperatures up to 150°C and offers sustained hot strength performance on selected metals at 135°C.  This makes it particularly useful for products whose power supply and connectivity generate a lot of heat.

The patented formula includes a novel stabiliser package that removes the need for ingredients that have recently come under greater regulatory scrutiny, making it an effective alternative to fastening methods in manufacturing environments.

Visitors to stand H165 will also learn more about the formula developments and the latest products in adhesives for bonding, locking and sealing threads, retaining assemblies and liquid gasketing.

Henkel cites improvements across the board, from higher service temperatures to the ability to cure through light surface contamination and improved curing on inactive metals without the need for a primer.

The company will also highlight its ability to provide a complete turnkey package.  Henkel complements its engineering adhesives with its own standard and bespoke dispensing systems.  This ensures the dispensing system is designed with the adhesive’s characteristics and performance in mind.

There will also be a cross section of both manual and automated systems on the stand.
