Adhesives Bond to Most Substrates, Allow Thin Profiles and Narrow Edge Borders
Rocky Hill, Conn. - For bonding liquid crystal modules (LCMs) to housings and brackets on handheld devices such as smart phones and tablets with displays of any size, Henkel Corporation offers a full line of LoctiteŽ Structural Adhesives that allow thinner profile device designs with extremely narrow edge borders. Replacing mechanical fasteners and double-sided tapes, LoctiteŽ Structural Adhesives offer high bond strength on metals, plastics, glass, inks and composites, and provide excellent impact resistance and processing flexibility.
Thermally stable and humidity resistant, LoctiteŽ HF (halogen-free) Structural Acrylic Adhesives offer durable bond lines that seal against moisture or contaminants entering the assembly. Once cured, these adhesives resist damage from impact even when bond lines are extremely thin, for example on edge borders. Fixturing rapidly at low temperatures, these materials can be dispensed in a variety of ways and adapt easily to design changes, process improvements and substrate substitution.
Four products are available in the LoctiteŽ HF Structural Acrylic Adhesive family: LoctiteŽ HF8000(TM), LoctiteŽ HF8150R(TM), LoctiteŽ HF8800(TM) and LoctiteŽ HF8075LV(TM). With varying viscosities for different assembly requirements, LoctiteŽ HF products are two-component adhesives that fixture in 2 to 8 minutes at room temperature once mixed. While all four formulations can be cured at room temperature, elevated temperatures accelerate cure times.
Offering all the features and benefits of LoctiteŽ HF products, LoctiteŽ PUR Hot Melt Adhesives are fast fixturing, single-component thermoset adhesives that resist heat, humidity and moisture. High strength and halogen-free, LoctiteŽ 3540(TM), LoctiteŽ 3541(TM) and LoctiteŽ 3542(TM) easily bond plastic, metal and glass substrates, fill gaps in assemblies and fixture in 1 to 2 minutes.
All LoctiteŽ Structural Adhesives allow parts to be realigned prior to cure.
