Improved low bloom and low odour instant adhesives

Henkel : 02 October, 2012  (New Product)
Loctite 403, 408 and 460 are three improved instant adhesives from Henkel that can be used for bonding virtually any materials.
Improved low bloom and low odour instant adhesives

The three Loctite instant adhesives are suitable for bonding almost all materials, from plastic through metal to rubber. Thanks to a special formulation, they do not irritate the skin, nor does their safety data sheet list any hazard symbols or chemical substances that pose a risk to health. In launching these improved products, Henkel is strengthening its portfolio of innovative solutions with regard to occupational health and safety. The improved formulation has higher moisture tolerance and leads to a longer lasting bond.

Like their forerunner products, the three new adhesives are particularly low odour, which makes them significantly more pleasant as far as users are concerned. Indeed, the innovative trio is ideal for use in poorly ventilated areas. Low bloom is another important attribute: no white edges form that impair the visual appearance of the workpiece. This means that the three new Loctite instant adhesives can also be used wherever aesthetic perfection is called for.

All three products are suitable for the rapid fixing and permanent bonding of almost all materials, including plastics, metals and rubber. A Loctite Primer is required for materials that are difficult to bond. The new formulations are also ideal for bonding porous materials such as wood, paper, leather, cork and fabric. They are capable of resisting temperatures between -40 and 80C; clarity is another noteworthy product attribute.

The primary difference between the three innovations is their viscosity. While Loctite 403 has very high viscosity, at 1200mPa s (millipascal-seconds), Loctite 460 offers low viscosity (40 mPa s) and Loctite 408 very low viscosity (5 mPa s). The new instant adhesives are straightforward to use. Because the pack size has not changed, existing application devices and systems can be used without any conversion measures.

Loctite 403 and Loctite 460 are available in bottles of 20g, 50g and 500g. Loctite 408 is available in bottles of 20g and 500g.
