Hybrid emergency repair adhesive
05 February 2018
New to Henkel’s Loctite Universal Structural Bonding range is Loctite HY 4060 GY, a five-minute-curing, general-purpose repair adhesive for a wide variety of metals, plastics, wood and rubber materials.
The product features Henkel’s patented hybrid technology; it cures quickly, in a wide range of operating conditions and even at low temperatures. It also has good gap-filling ability – up to 5mm – and is said to provide excellent resistance to moisture, temperature extremes and chemicals.
Loctite HY 4060 GY is a universal structural bonding adhesive, a single product suitable for multiple applications that eliminates the need for a choice of products to meet all maintenance bonding needs. Henkel says that, by comparison with its nearest competitor, the product offers significant advantages for multi-substrate bonding and greater durability at elevated temperatures.
This general maintenance product is particularly effective where a fast fixture is required on structures with variable gaps and mixed substrates. 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.
