Product Details Supplier Info More products

Henkel offers a range of Loctite, Nordbak and Hysol adhesives and sealants to help water engineers reduce downtime, improve equipment performance and save costs in applications such as concrete repair and in extending the operating life of pumps, gearboxes and centrifuges.

The products are designed to rectify problems caused by wear, abrasion, chemical attack, erosion, corrosion, impingement and mechanical damage.

Flow control mechanisms and influent structures are prone to wear and corrosion, making them less effective and susceptible leaks and further damage. Examples include butterfly valves and grit chamber paddles and spindles.

They can be rebuilt or re-profiled by the application of Nordbak epoxy wearing compounds or Hysol polymer composites and/or Loctite brushable ceramics.

A key advantage is their capability to create a sacrificial and renewable working surface, protecting the structural integrity of the original substrate.

Additional product information

Loctite coatings

  • Particularly valuable for improving pump efficiency
  • Use of Loctite products can restore the desired flow and pressure of a worn pump, resulting in lower power consumption
  • Loctite can also be used to repair the bowl on a decanter centrifuge, resulting in cost savings of up to 75 per cent compared with replacing the part

Loctite threadlockers

  • Used in water industry to prevent vibrational loosening, leakage and corrosion between threaded parts
  • Available in a range of viscosities and strengths, from semi-permanent formulations to those that are removable with standard hand tools
  • Applications include bar screen and clarifier components that will loosen under high duty cycles requiring periodic shutdowns for surface repairs and retightening of the threaded assemblies

Loctite sealants

  • Eliminate hydraulic and pneumatic leaks
  • Fill the space between threaded parts providing an instant, low-pressure seal
  • When fully cured, they seal to the burst strength of most pipe systems
  • Anaerobic, silicone and sealing cord are available to suit the substrate

Loctite retaining compounds

  • Secure bearings, bushings and cylindrical parts into housings or onto shafts
  • Achieve maximum load transmission capability and uniform stress distribution and eliminate fretting corrosion
