Hybrid emergency repair adhesive
11 September 2018
Henkel’s LOCTITE Universal Structural Bonding range includes LOCTITE HY 4060 GY, a five-minute-curing, general-purpose repair adhesive for a wide variety of metals, plastics, wood and rubber materials.
Henkel says that what makes this product special is the company's patented hybrid technology that, as well as providing universal adhesion, achieves a fast cure through a large gap, and gives excellent structural and environmental durability. It also has enhanced safety credentials.
Faster fixturing means greater productivity, an important benefit to maintenance engineers seeking efficiency gains from the products and systems they use. As LOCTITE HY 4060 GY cures quickly in a wide range of operating conditions and even at low temperatures, it is suitable for fast and effective repair. It also has good gap-filling ability – to 5mm – and is said to provide excellent resistance to moisture, temperature extremes and chemicals.
The product is a true universal structural bonding adhesive, a single product suitable for multiple applications.
Typical applications range from bracket bonding and cable tie installation to the repair of plastic clips and lugs and the surface rebuilding of plastic and metal parts. LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is supplied in a 25ml, ready-to-use pack.
