Henkel Corporation has announced that two products in their Loctite® line of adhesives, sealants and coatings have received gold level recognition as best new products of the year by New Equipment Digest in the annual King Awards competition.
Loctite® 3035™ Polyolefin Bonder, an innovative two-part acrylic adhesive for bonding low surface energy polyolefin plastics, took the gold level award in the assembly/fastening/tools category. The easy to use, 1:1 mix ratio adhesive stores at room temperature and fixes to plastics and metals in less than 15 minutes without surface preparation or primers. The polyolefin bonder achieves superior bond strength on PP, PE, HDPE, LDPE, ABS, nylon and other polyolefin plastics, and offers good environmental resistance in a range of end-use applications.
In the metalworking category, Loctite® SF 7900™ Ceramic Shield for Welding was selected as the gold level winner. This silicone-free, sprayable protective coating prevents spatter adhesion on MIG/MAG welding equipment for up to 8 hours with just one application. Spraying on easily and drying in seconds, the coating increases welding productivity by shielding contact tips, welding nozzles, shrouds and jigs from spatter, and eliminating the downtime normally required for equipment cleaning. Loctite® SF7900™ can also be used to protect power cables, sensors, metal components, and the jaws of spot welding systems for up to one week.
