Henkel, the global market leader in engineering adhesive technology, has introduced another 'world first' - the Loctite Health and Safety range that covers the lion's share of applications. These hazard-label-free products are designed to make the COSHH assessment and acceptance process for engineering adhesives as easy as possible.

This new range has now become the Loctite® front line offering and crucially this hazard-free, high performance is available at no additional cost to the end user.

The new Loctite Health and Safety range encompasses thread locking, thread sealing, gasketing and retaining - a comprehensive product programme based on sustainability and responsibility without any compromise on performance.

For threadlocking Loctite® 2400 and 2700 respectively provide medium and high strength seals - a highly cost effective method of preventing unwanted movement, loosening, leaks and corrosion.

From an application point of view the Loctite® threatlockers overlap to a degree with the Loctite® 5400 thread sealer. Its primary role however is to seal and lock to prevent leakage of gasses or liquids. There is no danger of joint corrosion and the fastener can be released at any time.

The job of Loctite® 5800 gasketing product is to provide a perfect seal between components with maximum face-to-face contact, eliminating flange face corrosion that can lead to minor leakages.

Completing the Health and Safety range is Loctite® 6300 retaining compound, typically used to secure bearings in housings achieving maximum load transmission, uniform stress distribution and the elimination of fretting corrosion.
