Henkel is proud to offer a wide selection of structural adhesive products, which fall under the LOCTITE and TEROSON brands. These adhesives are engineered to meet industrial bonding, sealing and assembly requirements, providing a tough, durable bond to a large variety of surfaces, and offering many advantages over other joining methods.

Benefits

Structural adhesives have advantages over nails, screws, welds and other joining methods, as they allow architects, engineers and builders to reliably join dissimilar materials, distribute stress evenly and enhance the fit, finish and appearance of building projects. Adhesives are strong and durable, and can bond to many surfaces, including metal and plastics. In addition, they are available in a range of easy-to-use packages, from cartridges and syringes to soft-squeeze bottles and dual cartridges, ensuring Henkel has the solution to meet the needs of any hand-held, manual and semi-automated application.

Others benefits of adhesives include:

  • Elimination or significant reduction of costly mechanical fastening methods
  • Improved aesthetics compared to mechanical fasteners
  • Fast processing speeds
  • Reduction in labor costs
  • Filling of large gaps between parts
  • User-friendly packaging

Applications

Our structural adhesives are designed to provide superior bond strength, long life and dependability on a variety of substrates and applications including:

  1. Metal Bonding—optimized to meet the demands of today’s total lower cost, high strength and lighter weight metal fabricating requirements.
  2. Plastic and Composite Bonding—for the toughest, most durable bond strength on composites and plastics, including difficult to bond polyolefins.
  3. Multiple Surface Bonding—for excellent bond strength when joining dissimilar materials, substrates and surface types.
  4. Magnet Bonding—for the fastest, most durable bonds on ferrite, alnico and neodymium iron boron permanent magnets.
  5. NVH – Noise Vibration & Harshness—highly engineered, custom solutions to help achieve noise and vibration reduction levels in applications for Ag-Con specialty vehicles and appliances.
