A large number of food packages contain adhesives backed up by the concentrated knowledge of Henkel, the world’s biggest adhesives manufacturer. This adds to the security of both customers in the food industry and the consumers of their products. The “Food Safe Packaging” knowledge platform launched by Henkel one and a half years ago is now being made even more attractive – with an upgrade to its Premium Area offering an extensive array of information for people in the food industry.
Aircraft interior applications require a unique combination of properties and processing. Materials must have very low flammability, not only in terms of the ability to withstand flame impingement, but also the smoke and toxic gas released during exposure to fire. Materials must be processed easily due to the high volume of interior parts manufactured. Flammability requirements are becoming more stringent and composite materials are being used in more structural applications, both of which present increased demands on the materials being used. Henkel will be holding a webinar on “Material for Aircraft Interior Applications” on November 5th, 2014 at 08:00 PM (CET). Annika Blom and David Leach will introduce participants to composites and assembly solutions for aircraft interior applications.
