New Henkel Hi Temp Instant Adhesives
New instant adhesives.
Rocky Hill, CT — The newest surface insensitive Loctite® Instant Adhesives from Henkel Corporation maintain their bond strength in operating temperatures as high as 250°F (121°C), yet fixture in just 15 seconds or less. Loctite 401, Loctite 406, Loctite 495 and Loctite 454 surface insensitive instant adhesives rival the temperature resistance of epoxies and acrylics and are designed to meet the needs of high speed assembly processes.

According to the company, these instant adhesives cure rapidly on dry or acidic surfaces and in low humidity environments. These surface insensitive formulations bond reliably to a wide variety of substrates including steel, aluminum, ABS, PVC, polycarbonate, nitrile rubber, chromate-plated parts, paper, balsa wood and more. Offering shear strengths to 3200 psi, Loctite 401 is a medium-viscosity, general-purpose cyanoacrylate adhesive that fills gaps to 0.005-in. (0.127mm), while Loctite 406 is a water-thin wicking grade adhesive designed to fill gaps as small as 0.004-in. (0.102mm). Loctite 495 is a low-viscosity grade specifically formulated to fill gaps as large as 0.004-in. (0.102mm). Excellent for porous surfaces, Loctite 454 is a non-drip gel that fills gaps up to 0.010-in. (0.25mm), while maintaining shear strength to 3200 psi.
