Henkel is launching HY 4070 Universal Structural Bonder, the latest addition to its family of versatile adhesives that use patented hybrid technology. HY 4070 Universal Structural Bonder has been developed specifically for maintenance and repair tasks.
The Universal Structural Bonders' many attributes have been achieved through new adhesive technology that substantially extends the application scope of these products while also providing improved health and safety benefits.
The general-purpose Universal Structural Bonders combine the qualities of different adhesives to achieve bond strength, fast fixture speed and durability. They provide improved performance on a variety of substrates and the versatility to solve many more maintenance and repair problems. Formulated specifically for application in harsh factory and plant environments, they are effective in a wide variety of operating conditions, from temperature extremes to high vibration.
The new Loctite HY 4070 provides a good example of what these qualities mean to maintenance engineers seeking methods to optimise efficiency and reduce costs while keeping plant running smoothly and safely. It provides ultra-fast fixturing and bond strength on most plastics or plastic/metal combinations, and also on rubber materials.
Loctite HY 4070 is described as a 'must-have' for any maintenance tool box as the one product suits multiple applications. It therefore simplifies the adhesive selection process, reduces inventory and the need for storage. Although suitable for the lion's share of applications where a 60-second fixture is required, it is particularly good where there are variable gaps of up to 5mm between mixed substrates.
Typical applications include the tacking and temporary location of parts before permanent fixture, through to emergency repair of moulded plastics or metal parts, and rebuilding plastic lugs and mounts. The product is supplied in a 10ml, ready-to-use pack.
