Technology Trends

Our overview shows the latest innovations in comparison to market trends and the impact on Aerospace suppliers in general.


Market Trends 2010-2015 How does Henkel intersect
Performance: Shift from metal to composites and need for improved durability in composite applications.

Composite Assembly

Liquid Shims

Weight Reduction

  • Syntactic Potting
  • Abradable Seal

Reduced Fabrication Cost

  • Peel Ply
  • PL 696
  • Assembly Adhesive
  • Surfacing Film
Globalization of business: Power shifting to (emerging) subcontractors in all regions.

Improved “fly to buy”

  • Dispensing
  • Point of Packages
  • Global Distribution and KAM/Sales Support
Focus on cost reduction and productivty enhancement.

Reduced Fabrication Cost

  • Peel Ply
  • PL 696
  • Assembly Adhesive
  • Surfacing Film
Focus on H, S & E.
Sustainability - HS&E regulations on chrome VI and phenolic resins before 2013.

 “Cleaner” Raw Materials

Henkel Benzoxazine Resin 99110 (JEC Innovation Award Finalist 2010)
A  unique resin system in that it is stable at ambient temperatures for over six months as a one-part resin - reduces the cost of processing, storage, and shipment.
Requires no further processing steps, lowers repair costs and eliminates the risk of damaging fibers in the composite structure which could compromise properties

Drive to Lower cost Processing: New cost effective manufacturing processes (OOA), Advanced/cost effective assembly processes (bonding, RTM, rivet less).

Reduced Fabrication Cost

  • Peel Ply
  • PL 696
  • Assembly Adhesive
  • Surfacing Film
