In the first few months of 2015 alone, Henkel, a specialist in industrial adhesives, sealants and functional coatings, has provided technical support to nine universities across the UK and numerous technical colleges. Adhesive technology, in all of its forms, offers significant design and performance advantages across industry. Henkel is therefore committed to ensuring technology students and those training in the skilled trades are up to speed on all the latest developments and application techniques.

The Henkel technical support department covers all adhesives technologies. Its scope ranges from advice on the most appropriate type of product for the job via the Henkel technical help line to complete lectures on technologies such as structural bonding.

The support team also works alongside students, and Formula Student is a good example. Run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, it is Europe’s longest-established educational motorsport competition and year on year Henkel allows students to tap into its expertise during the process of designing and constructing a single-seat racing car. 

Similarly, the company also runs skills-building training days and workshops in its Technical Support Centre or on site to provide hands-on experience. The ‘Meet the Manufacturers’ programme, run by HIP! in conjunction with the UK Copper Board National Apprentice of the Year, is proving popular. This provides the opportunity for lecturers to update their knowledge on what’s new in the world of adhesives.

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.
