Emergency repair adhesive

21 September 2018

Henkel’s LOCTITE Universal Structural Bonding range includes LOCTITE HY 4060 GY, a five-minute-curing, general-purpose repair adhesive for a wide variety of metals, plastics, wood and rubber materials. 

Henkel’s patented hybrid technology provides universal adhesion, achieves a fast cure through a large gap, and is said to offer excellent structural and environmental durability. It also has enhanced safety credentials.

Clearly faster fixturing means greater productivity, an important benefit to maintenance engineers seeking efficiency gains from the products and systems they use. As LOCTITE HY 4060 GY cures so quickly, in a wide range of operating conditions and even at low temperatures, it is a suitable choice for fast and effective repair.  It also has good gap-filling ability – up to 5mm – and provides impressive resistance to moisture, temperature extremes and chemicals.

LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is a true universal structural bonding adhesive, a single product suitable for multiple applications that eliminates the need for a choice of products to meet all maintenance bonding needs.  And by comparison with its nearest competitor LOCTIT HY 4060 GY is said to offer significant advantages for multi-substrate bonding and far greater durability at elevated temperatures.

This product is particularly effective where a fast fixture is required on structures with variable gaps and mixed substrates. Typical applications range from bracket bonding and cable tie installation to the repair of plastic clips and lugs and the surface rebuilding of plastic and metal parts.
