Henkel will be displaying its range of Loctite structural adhesives and dispensing equipment at Southern Manufacturing 2014 on stand M73.

According to the company, Loctite structural bonding offers significant advantages compared with — or in combination with — other fastening methods such as stapling, riveting or welding.

Low-pressure moulding was demonstrated at last year’s Southern Manufacturing Show and in 2014 Henkel will again be emphasising its merits.

Plus, to demonstrate its ability to encapsulate delicate components, Henkel will be giving away Technomelt-encapsulated USB sticks that will also contain technical and application data on the technology, which is a class between casting and injection.

Key product features

Loctite bonding

  • Allows dissimilar materials to be joined
  • Saves weight
  • Seals joints
  • Forms an insulating film to prevent contact corrosion
  • Distributes stress evenly over the entire bond face, achieving greater static and dynamic strength

Technomelt moulding

  • Non-aggressive
  • Highly cost effective
  • Fast
  • As low pressures are involved, lower-cost mould tools can be used and even surface mount components and lead-free soldering safely enclosed
