Loctite’s recent release of LOCTITE HY 4060 GY adds a new product to its Universal Structural Bonding range. The adhesive can be used to bond plastics, wood, metals and rubber within five minutes and is intended for use as general-purpose repair adhesive. The rapid curing time remains the same, even when there is a relatively large gap that must be filled. The adhesive is also durable in harsh environments including those subjected to moisture, chemicals and temperature extremes.

The company says that its product will help maintenance engineers to get things done faster and that they can use it as a single solution to a wide variety of repair challenges instead of having to use a range of adhesives which each have a different purpose. Variable gaps between materials and mixed substrates need not present a problem, says Loctite. The adhesive can fill gaps of up to 5mm creating strong bonds that remain durable even at high temperatures.
