Europe: Henkel launches hybrid adhesive


Henkel has introduced Loctite 4090, a hybrid adhesive that combines features of structural and instant adhesives – bond strength and speed.

This provides high impact resistance, high strength bonding on a variety of substrates, and high temperature resistance, making it versatile enough to solve a wide range of design and assembly challenges.

The first hybrid adhesive is said to deliver the speed of a cyanoacrylate and the strength of an epoxy.

Its features and benefits include temperature resistance up to 150 degrees Celsius, high impact and vibration resistance, high moisture resistance, and gap filling up to 5 mm.

It is suited for bonding a variety of substrates, including metals, most plastics and rubbers.

This product is available as a 50 ml cartridge in a carton with five mix nozzles.

Henkel says it should be dispensed with the standard Loctite 50 ml Dual Cartridge Manual Applicator, which must be ordered separately.
