The new Loctite 403, 406 and 408 instant adhesives, from Henkel, are suitable for bonding of almost all materials, from plastic to metal to rubber. Thanks to its special formulation, they are not irritating to the skin. The new formula has a higher tolerance to moisture and results in a longer shelf life of the bond.
These three new adhesives are very low odor. This makes them much more comfortable for the user. Especially for working in rooms with low ventilation, the three innovations are ideal. Another essential feature is that the splice not blooms after setting (low bloom). They form no white edges, which would affect the aesthetic appearance. This means that the three new Loctite instant adhesives can be used in places where a perfect part appearance is needed.
All three products are suitable for the quick fix and permanent bonding of almost all materials, from plastic to metal to rubber. For difficult to bond materials, a Loctite primer is needed. The new formulations are also ideal for bonding porous materials such as wood, paper, leather, cork and fabric. They withstand temperatures from minus 40 degrees Celsius and 80 degrees Celsius, and are characterized in that they are colorless.
Significant difference between the three innovations is its viscosity. While Loctite 403 1200 mPas (millipascal seconds) has a very high viscosity, it is at low Loctite 460 (40 mPa s) and Loctite 408 even very low (5 mPa.s). The new instant adhesives are easy to use. Since their sizes were not changed, they can customers with all existing application equipment or facilities used without any modification.
