Innovative Loctite instant adhesives offer new fields of application

Loctite 403, 408 and 460 are three improved instant adhesives from Henkel that can be used for bonding virtually any materials. Already market leaders in terms of health and safety, these products now offer even better performance.

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.

Low odour and low bloom
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.

Easy to use and with different viscosities
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 minus 40 degrees Celsius and 80 degrees Celsius; clarity is another noteworthy product attribute.

The primary difference between the three innovations is their viscosity. While Loctite 403 has very high viscosity, at 1200 mPa 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, customers can continue using their existing application devices and systems 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.
