Henkel’s innovative, custom-formulated adhesives play a significant part in almost every aspect of manufactured housing construction. Many of the industry’s objectives of reducing costs and improving the quality of modular housing have been realized in part due to advanced adhesive products and strategies devised by the experts at Henkel.

The array of outstanding Henkel adhesives combines simple building materials into large composite elements with enhanced structural integrity. Typical applications include:

Henkel Custom Solutions
Henkel products expose the limitations of conventional adhesives. But high quality adhesives work best when distributed by equally efficient means. The company’s line of Henkel Loctite Equipment products works with Henkel adhesives to minimize production waste, increase yield and eliminate costly downtime.

To promote both customer convenience and environmental awareness, Henkel custom-installs bulk supply systems, eliminating the need for returns of empty drums and tote bins. An inventory control telemetry system tracks consumption on a daily or weekly basis.
