Henkel’s Loctite brand of adhesives has been used to attach sterling silver mounts to glass bottles of Trinitas single malt whisky from the Dalmore distillery.

After discussions about the specific needs, Henkel sales engineer Jackie Marshall stayed on to give technical assistance to Eric Smith, the Glasgow-based jeweller who designed the bottle, and his team.

This included providing samples, UV lights and bonding materials with which the jeweller could experiment.

Following tests, Loctite Hysol 3430 was found to offer the best solution to the bonding demands.

This is a two-part epoxy adhesive that uses a bi-mixer nozzle so the adhesive is automatically mixed at the point of application.

Incorporating this mixer into the adhesive packaging means that manual mixing – with the possibility of an incorrect ratio – is no longer necessary.

Of particular importance as far as this application is concerned is the fact that the adhesive is ultra clear.

This enables a very high quality finish to be achieved.
