HENKEL CORP.: Cyanoacrylates

April 16, 2010


Henkel Corp. has reformulated three Loctite® cyanoacrylates to offer improved performance and stability for bonding to a range of substrates. The reformulated versions of Loctite 4203TM, 4204TM and 4205TM Prism® Instant Adhesives withstand temperatures up to 250°F, fixture and cure more rapidly, and offer excellent impact and peel resistance.

Loctite 4203 Prism Instant Adhesive is a low-viscosity, clear cyanoacrylate formulation designed to bond close-fitting parts. Loctite 4204 Prism Instant Adhesive is a medium-viscosity, clear cyanoacrylate formulation for general-purpose bonding. Loctite 4205 Prism Instant Adhesives is a clear, sag-resistant gel cyanoacrylate formulation suitable for vertical or overhead applications and for use on porous surfaces.

These thermal-resistant, rubber-toughened, surface-insensitive cyanoacrylates cure rapidly on a range of substrates, including plastics, metals, rubber, fiberglass, neoprene, and more. They can be used in the assembly of electric motors, kitchenware, marine components, military devices, microelectronics and other industrial assembly applications.  They are also suitable for gasket bonding.
