LOCTITE launches new emergency repair adhesive for highly durable bonds

LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is a new five-minute-curing, general-purpose repair adhesive, joining the Universal Structural Bonding range.

Suitable for a wide variety of metals, plastics, wood and rubber materials, it features Henkel’s patented hybrid technology so it not only provides universal adhesion but also achieves a fast cure through a large gap, excellent structural and environmental durability. It also has enhanced safety credentials. It comes supplied in a 25ml, ready-to-use pack.

Providing productivity gains for maintenance engineers, LOCTITE HY 4060 GY cures quickly in a wide range of operating conditions and even at low temperatures. It also has good gap-filling ability – up to 5mm – and provides excellent resistance to moisture, temperature extremes and chemicals.

The universal structural bonding adhesive is suitable for multiple applications, so users don’t need to have a number of options on hand. LOCTITE says it offer benefits over its nearest competitor, with significant advantages for multi-substrate bonding and far greater durability at elevated temperatures.

The firm added: “This is an excellent general maintenance product that is particularly effective where a fast fixture is required on structures with variable gaps and mixed substrates. Typical applications range from bracket bonding and cable tie installation to the repair of plastic clips and lugs and the surface rebuilding of plastic and metal parts.”
