Henkel has extended its Loctite Health and Safety range of non-hazardous instant adhesives (cyanoacrylates). The adhesives are said to be ideal for applications where aesthetics are a key consideration and are particularly suitable for the rapid positioning and fixturing of parts.

The non-hazard-labelled products can be used to join a wide range of dissimilar materials. This capability extends to porous or acidic substrates such as wood, paper, leather and cork, as well as plastics, rubber and metals.

The resultant shear and tensile bond strength is said to be very good, even on small bond faces.

The Health and Safety adhesives are colourless with low bloom and low odour. All feature a typical fixture time of between five and 20 seconds depending on the substrates.
