Loctite Adhesives and Retaining

Loctite Instant Bonding

As one of the most successful products in its field and a true classic, Loctite Instant Adhesive is always the first choice for reliable, high-performance bonding. Loctite is the market leader in the field of instant bonding technology. Loctite Instant Adhesive is suitable for a range of materials and is available as a liquid, gel or in a “precision” format.

All feature exceptionally fast adhesion and super strong bonding power. For all instant repairs, for any application within industries, in model making, the workshop or the car, it can be easily taken care of with Loctite Instant Adhesive.

The product bonds a wide range of different materials such as porcelain, ceramic, wood, leather, rubber, plastics (e.g. PVC, ABS, polystyrene), metal, cork and cardboard. Due to its low viscosity, Loctite Instant Adhesive flows into even the smallest of gaps to provide permanent, secure bonds.

Loctite Retaining

Loctite Retaining Compounds secure bearings, bushes and cylindrical parts into housings or onto shafts. They achieve maximum load transmission capability and uniform stress distribution and eliminate fretting corrosion. Applied as a liquid, they form a 100 % contact between mating metal surfaces, eliminating the need for expensive replacement parts, time consuming machining or the use of mechanical methods. Loctite Retaining Compounds fill the inner space between components and cure to form a strong precision assembly.

Advantages of Loctite Retaining Compounds as compared to conventional assembly methods:

  • High-strength products can carry high loads
  • Fill all voids to prevent corrosion and fretting
  • 100 % contact – load and stress is distributed evenly over the joint
  • UV Adhesives

    UV cure adhesive products are used in the production of glassware, glass furniture, acrylic glass, and for the optical industry and medical technology field. They are preferred by manufacturers for their high transparency and exceptional stability, even in difficult environmental conditions such as humidity and sunlight.

    Structural Bonding

    Structural Bonding – Epoxies

  • Simplifies construction by increasing strength/rigidity for load transmission
  • Prevents material fatigue and failure by achieving uniform transmission of loads (stress distribution) and by maintaining the structural integrity (no thermal or mechanical weakening of parts)
  • Saves production costs by replacing conventional mechanical fasteners (screws, rivets or welding)
  • Saves material cost and saves weight by reducing material thickness while maintaining load transmission characteristics
  • Allows the most varied substrate combinations, e.g. metal/plastics, metal/glass, metal/wood etc.
  • Structural Bonding – Acrylics

  • Simplifies construction by increasing strength/rigidity for load transmission
  • Prevents material fatigue and failure by achieving uniform transmission of loads (stress distribution) and by maintaining the structural integrity (no thermal or mechanical weakening of parts)
  • Saves production costs by replacing conventional mechanical fasteners (screws, rivets or welding)
  • Saves material cost and saves weight by reducing material thickness while maintaining load transmission characteristics
  • Allows the most varied substrate combinations, e.g. metal/plastics, metal/glass, metal/wood etc.
  • Structural Bonding – Silicones

  • Simplifies construction by increasing strength/rigidity to withstand dynamic loads
  • Prevents material fatigue and failure by achieving uniform transmission of the load (stress distribution) and by maintaining the structural integrity (no thermal or mechanical weakening of parts)
  • Saves production costs by replacing conventional mechanical fasteners (screws, rivets or welding)
  • Allows the most varied substrate combinations, e.g. metal/plastics, metal/glass, metal/wood etc.
  • Reduces and/or compensates stress caused by differential thermal expansion of joint substrates
