The Loctite 401, 406 and 454 series of adhesives from Henkel are now resistant to temperatures of up to 120ºC. This means they can now join almost any material in as little as two seconds across a wider range of applications.

Loctite 401 is an all-purpose instant adhesive suitable for use with rubber, plastics, metals and porous materials such as wood, paper, cork and leather. It is also said to be ideal for smooth, acidic substrates such as galvanised or chromed components.

Loctite 406 is designed for bonding polyethylene, polypropylene and PTFE after pre-treatment with Loctite 770 polyolefin primer.

Loctite 454 is recommended for applications where non-dripping is a prerequisite. This general-purpose gel is suitable for use on vertical or overhead surfaces. It is also designed for bonding a range of dissimilar materials where large gaps are present.
