As well as showcasing the latest in adhesive technologies under its Loctite brand, Henkel (stand N100) will use the Southern Manufacturing show to shine a spotlight on its skills in helping customers achieve the optimal joining solution.
Henkel Adhesive Technologies, a leader in structural adhesives and surface treatments for the aircraft OEM and MRO industries worldwide, has announced its collaboration on a research study focused on ‘Reducing CO2 Emissions by Improving Materials Utilisation’.
Henkel, a leader in structural adhesives and surface treatments for aircraft OEMs and MRO industries, recently collaborated with Boeing to develop Loctite EA 9365FST, a new two-part epoxy adhesive that reinforces and bonds thermoplastic and thermoset substrates and can serve as a matrix resin on fiberglass to strengthen the thin walls of thermoplastic assemblies.
Henkel was on hand to showcase its new Loctite EA 9378 AERO, an innovative next-generation epoxy-based liquid shim material at JEC World. Still under development, Mike Richardson joined with the Henkel team to learn more.
Henkel will be exhibiting at JEC World 2019. The company has expanded its production facilities at Montornès del Vallès in Spain and continues focus on innovative solutions designed to enhance the sustainability and consolidation of composite structures.
In a busier sky than ever, the aerospace industry relies on strong partners capable of meeting its growing demands for more efficient and lightweighting composite materials with an uplift in global availability.
Mike Richardson met with Henkel’s global key account manager, aerospace, Guido Adolph during the recent JEC World Paris event to hear about the company’s latest potting compounds and liquid shim product developments.
To serve this growing demand for high-impact solutions in the aerospace market, Henkel says it has started the construction of a new production facility for aerospace materials at its site in Montornès del Vallès, Spain.
