New Loctite instant adhesives built to take the heat

Loctite instant adhesives for industrial applications already encompass a broad range of different categories, such as light-curing, low-bloom, impact and shock resistant, as well as toughened products for flexible bond lines. Loctite instant adhesives are also extensively used for joining difficult-to-bond plastics, for gap-filling applications and in medical devices. Now, with Loctite 401, 406 and 454, three products with an enhanced formulation have been launched onto the market, capable of withstanding service temperatures of up to 120 °C.

All three products have seen their formulation improved and are now temperature resistant up to 120 °C without any adverse effect whatsoever on overall performance – which means these Loctite instant adhesives are suitable for even more applications. Loctite 401, 406 and 454 can fixture almost any material in less than five seconds. They are exceptionally reliable and safe to use – and now they can withstand higher temperatures than ever before.

They can be readily integrated in all kinds of production processes or used in the workshop, invariably contributing to both efficiency improvements and savings in cost. These products are available in various viscosities to suit individual user applications, and there is also a comprehensive range of dispensing equipment available.

New fields of application for Loctite’s proven instant adhesives

New applications for this improved product range can be found, for instance, in the electronics industry, e.g. for bonding components installed in generators and storage batteries. In electric motors and loudspeakers too, the number of uses for these enhanced Loctite adhesives has been extended. And also in washing machines and tumble dryers, in heating elements and lighting equipment, the upgraded product line should soon find itself increasing in popularity.
