In-Depth Brochure Details Structural Adhesives for Metal Substrates
Rocky Hill, Conn. -- October 21, 2011... Henkel Corporation has updated and reintroduced its Loctite(r) Design Guide for Bonding Metals. This extensive 59-page guide opens with background information on the advantages of using structural adhesives over mechanical fasteners or thermal joining to bond metal substrates, and a review of effective joint design strategies for stress distribution. The remainder of the brochure features a comprehensive review of each available structural adhesive technology, and in-depth discussions of the best adhesives for a range of metal substrates.
Individual metal bonding chapters provide bond strength and shear strength data for each of eight substrates: aluminum, anodized aluminum, copper, nickel, stainless steel, steel, zinc dichromated steel and zinc galvanized steel. The literature also introduces data on 23 of the newest structural adhesives from Loctite(r).
