Henkel offers a range of adhesive technologies for manufacturers of professional football boots. One of the company’s latest developments is a polyurethane adhesive, a thin layer of which bonds the upper with the sole in one operation.

Henkel adhesive technology

For boot manufacturers, this means lower adhesive consumption and improved production sustainability.

Tongues, eyelets, toecaps, heel reinforcement and various foam inlay materials are all bonded with Henkel products.

The same technology applies to footballs. These are also now made from advanced plastics, and panels are bonded. The seamless surface this method creates gives the ball maximum wear resistance, improves its flight characteristics and reduces water absorption on wet match days.

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. 

Henkel is the only adhesive manufacturer to offer a comprehensive range of products that are hazard-label free. 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.

As both the product and its method of application dictate the quality of process, Henkel also has considerable expertise in the supply of dedicated dispensing equipment that, if necessary, can be bespoke to the application. This equipment ensures the product is applied quickly, cleanly, accurately and economically.
