LOCTITE introduces larger adhesive pack size

To help cater for the busier workplace, LOCTITE has made its HY 4070 structural bonding adhesive available in a larger 45g size that is dispensed with a handgun. It sits alongside the "˜standard' 11g pack option. Used as an effective bonding solution for a range of applications involving plastics, rubbers and metals, the material is one of a family of hybrid bonding products developed by the company.

The company says that LOCTITE HY 4070 "Has proved a superior alternative to traditional five-minute epoxies which are suitable for a limited range of materials and perform poorly on plastics". LOCTITE HY 4070 is claimed to bond to almost any material, including plastics, and to bond faster than five-minute epoxies, irrespective of the ambient temperature. The material also offers gap filling ability and builds strength fast with good thermal and environmental durability.
