Press release date: August 16, 2012
Rocky Hill, Conn. -- For low surface energy polyolefin plastics that are extremely difficult to bond, Henkel Corporation has introduced Loctite® 3035(TM) Polyolefin Bonder, an innovative two-part acrylic adhesive that mixes easily, stores at room temperature, and fixtures to plastics and metals in less than 15 minutes without surface preparation or primers. This adhesive achieves superior bond strength on PP, PE, HDPE, LDPE, ABS and nylon, and offers good environmental resistance in a range of end-use applications.
Designed and formulated for ease-of-use, Loctite® 3035(TM) Polyolefin Bonder is packaged in a 50 or 400 ml cartridge that ensures an accurate 1:1 mix ratio upon dispense. This simple and easy-to-achieve mix ratio ensures that the adhesive will cure properly and achieve a high-strength bond every time. As it is stable at room temperature, the new polyolefin bonder minimizes energy and equipment costs associated with refrigerated storage. Loctite® 3035(TM) Polyolefin Bonder further reduces manufacturing and labor costs since primers and surface treatments are not necessary.
