Innovations are of great strategic importance for Henkel, because they provide the basis for our future business portfolio. Already today, more than 30 percent of our annual sales are generated by new, innovative products introduced during the preceding three years.
Persil, Purex, Pril, Schwarzkopf, Dial, Syoss, Loctite, Teroson, or Technomelt – as varied as the brands and technologies from Henkel are, they have one thing in common: they are based on considerable know-how and innovative ideas. We are constantly at work to perfect our products and production processes, so that we can meet even better the needs of our customers and the consumer. Successfully. Below you will find examples of the many innovative products from Henkel.
Pril Kraft-Gel is the first dishwashing liquid offering efficacy not only against grease but also starchy residues – making dishwashing by hand easier than ever before. The new formula contains enzymes that cut through starch molecules, dissolving even stubborn, baked-on residue from pasta, potatoes and rice. The new Pril Kraft-Gel was introduced in the first quarter in the Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Africa/Middle East regions. www.pril.de
The powerful liquid detergent Persil High Suds Gel brings the cleaning power of Persil to a number of countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Its formula was especially adapted to the regional requirements for washing by hand: powerful suds, effective stain removal, and a fresh, long-lasting scent. www.persil.de
The new Somat Gel Tabs – sold as Pril Gel Caps in Italy since July 2013 – are the first tabs made by Henkel completely from gel. They dissolve quickly in the dishwasher and completely remove even the toughest residue. The result: a brilliant shine for dishes. www.somat.de

Electronic devices are becoming increasingly smaller and thinner with growing functionality. The flexible heat-absorbing film from the Loctite TAF series lowers the processor and housing temperature of mobile devices by more than 3 degrees Celsius. It therefore improves design flexibility and device performance while enhancing user comfort. www.henkel.com/electronics

In conjunction with automotive supplier Benteler-SGL, Henkel has developed a process for the large-scale manufacture of fiberglass-reinforced leaf springs that weigh up to 65 percent less than steel leaf springs. www.henkel.com/automotive
