  • Henkel Unveils First Hybrid Adhesive

  • Henkel has introduced Loctite 4090, an innovative hybrid adhesive that combines the key features of structural and instant adhesives – bond strength and speed. This powerful combination provides high impact resistance, high strength bonding on a variety of substrates, and high temperature resistance, making it versatile enough to solve a wide range of design and assembly challenges.

    Loctite 4090 adhesive greatly expands the capabilities of traditional adhesives and opens the door to new applications and new solutions. This is the first hybrid adhesive, it delivers the speed of a cyanoacrylate and the strength of an epoxy.

    “The industry is under pressure to be more competitive, to reduce manufacturing costs and to look for new design and assembly solutions,” said Henkel’s Mike Quail, Vice President Marketing, General Industry. “Loctite 4090 has been designed to reach beyond conventional industry approaches. It is the first adhesive of its kind. Never before has there been a hybrid adhesive designed to tackle the most challenging situations.” ....
