Henkel Adhesives for Multi-Substrate Bonding Meet Needs for High Series Production of Composite Parts

Henkel’s fast-curing and reliable adhesives and matrix resins answer the increasing call from the auto industry for high performance continuous fiber-reinforced composites in integrated structural assemblies. At K 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 19 to 26, the company will be on the KraussMaffei booth B27/C24/C27/D24 in Hall 15 showing various assembly solutions for new lightweight materials from its broad materials portfolio.

Henkel Offers In-Depth Information on Safe and Highly Productive Solutions for Retortable Packaging

As part of the proposal for a German printing ink ordinance, primary aromatic amines (PAAs) have recently been in focus among the non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) found in flexible packaging again. In contrast to conventional laminating adhesives, state-of-the-art aliphatic adhesives offer complete safety for high temperature applications, as they will not form PAAs in retortable and ovenable applications. Henkel’s expert Helga Garmann explains why aliphatic adhesives are the perfect solution especially for high temperature resistance. Interested parties can get in-depth information in a free webinar.

Silicone sealant of the future

From roofs to cellars, silicone sealants are used in numerous applications by construction contractors and craftsmen everywhere. There are different silicones for different uses. However, not all of them are entirely harmless to health – take, for example, the oxime silicones based on methyl ethyl ketoxime (MEKO), which are considered to be carcinogenic. But now, with Pattex FUSIONXLT, Henkel has launched an innovative, oxime-free technology offering impressive user safety and excellent suitability – an all-in-one solution that covers virtually every application, whether interior or exterior.
