Sealing mechanical components is made even easier with Loctite new silicone products, Henkel has unveiled at this year’s Automechanika in Frankfurt. The innovative premium silicones were developed to satisfy the highest demands in automotive repair shops.
Where R&D competencies complement each other, outstanding development results invariably ensue. Henkel’s know-how in the field of polyurethane-based composite matrix resins and the expertise of KraussMaffei, one of the world’s leading makers of manufacturing and processing machinery for plastics, have proven to be a perfect match. The outcome: The curing time of matrix resin Loctite MAX 2 has now been reduced to just one minute. The significant improvement on the original goal of five minutes relates to a performance result achieved for the first time on a high-pressure dosing unit.
