HENKEL: Structural Adhesives Selector Guide

October 4, 2011

To communicate structural adhesives’ ability to eliminate or greatly reduce fasteners and welds from an assembly while improving strength and durability, this company has introduced its updated Loctite® Structural Adhesives Selector Guide. Designed to be fun and user friendly, the 34-page guide focuses on the four main application areas for structural assembly: magnet bonding, metal bonding, multiple surface bonding, and plastic/composite/polyolefin bonding. The reader is greeted by Professor McGlue, an Einstein-like cartoon character that provides tips and clues about working with structural adhesives. The guide also reviews “The 10 Immutable Laws of Structural Engagement,” a lighthearted yet pointed look at the benefits of working with this adhesive technology.

For magnet bonding, metal bonding, multiple surface bonding, and plastic/composite/polyolefin bonding, the guide briefly discusses the benefits that structural adhesives provide, then presents product selector tables specific to the application. Combined, these selector tables offer technical information on more than 75 Loctite structural adhesive products. A special section of the guide is dedicated to Loctite dispensing and curing equipment.
