Henkel extends Health and Safety Adhesive Range with High- and Low- Viscosity Variants

Posted on 2/20/2013 3:06:34 PM By ASC

Henkel’s Loctite Health and Safety range now includes high- and low-viscosity adhesives. The Loctite line is comprises of cyanoacrylates, which are non-hazardous and create a strong bond almost instantaneously. Loctite 403 is the most viscous adhesive in the line and is suitable when there is a small gap between parts or an application where the adhesive should not run. Conversely, Loctite 408 has extremely low viscosity for applications where capillary action is required or an instant seal is needed on a joint. In addition, Loctite 460 is available for slightly higher viscosity than Loctite 408. All Loctite adhesives bind to a wide range of substrates, including wood, paper, leather, cork, metal, rubber, and plastics. Fixing time is five to 20 seconds depending on the substrate.
