Adhesive-Bonded Roof for an Elephant House

Purbond Rebranded as Loctite

As part of the new, leaner branding concept adopted by Henkel for its industrial adhesives business, the timber construction adhesives previously known as Purbond are to be marketed under the Loctite brand.

In this streamlining process, all products of Henkel’s Adhesive Technologies business unit are being transferred to five intuitively assimilable umbrella brands, each of which represents a group of specific technologies and applications.

Enhancing Energy Efficiency

Climate change is among the biggest global challenges of our time. Hence Henkel has defined “Energy & Climate” as one of the six focal areas of its sustainability strategy, with a clear efficiency target: to reduce energy consumption per production unit by 15 percent by 2015 (base year: 2010). The introduction of energy-efficient products and technologies and the continuous improvement of production processes are all playing a key role in the achievement of this goal.

Accolade for Composite Roof Module

Working with a network of partners, KraussMaffei and Henkel have developed a process based on surface resin transfer molding technology (Surface-RTM) for the series manufacture of composite components offering a surface quality good enough for automobile exteriors – without the need for further treatment. The technology showpiece for this development project was the roof segment of the Roding Roadster R1 lightweight sports car. Now, that roof segment has garnered gold in the coveted 2014 Materialica Design + Technology Awards in the “Surface & Technology” category. The carbon reinforced plastic component based on the polyurethane matrix resin Loctite MAX 3 from Henkel can be directly coated as the fiber structure remains hidden below the surface.
