Henkel has improved the formulations of two of its threadlocking adhesives to meet the requirements of engineers and designers and to facilitate use on a wider selection of substrates.

Medium strength Loctite 243 and high strength Loctite 270 are now more oil tolerant than previous grades, enabling them to be used more readily on as-received parts, including those contaminated with engine oils, corrosion-prevention oils and cutting fluids.

Their temperature resistance has also been increased to 180C and the adhesives will cure not only on active substrates, such as iron, copper, brass and steel, but also on passive materials, including stainless steel, aluminium, nickel and zinc-plated surfaces and chrome-free, inorganic and organic coatings.

Henkel is the world market leader in state-of-the-art industrial adhesives, sealants and surface treatment products for a wide variety of engineering applications. Its leading brands for the industrial market are Loctite, Bonderite, Teroson, Aquence and Technomelt.

Strong customer focus, research and innovation, consistent quality and sustainable business practices have contributed to its record of success, as has continuous improvement in both its products and methods of manufacture.

The company applies its expertise to the entire value chain across the engineering sector. Whatever you build, manufacture, assemble or repair, its technical consultancy service will provide all the assistance and training you need to ensure you have the best product and the skill to apply to its best advantage.

Henkel brands are internationally renowned for their proven reliability and performance and the scope of the company’s product programme extends from cleaning and pre-treatment through to bonding, sealing, filling and protecting, coating and lubricating.

Its Loctite Health and Safety series is suitable for the lion’s share of engineering applications and includes thread lockers, thread sealants, gasketing adhesives, retaining compounds and instant adhesives.
