Adhesive performance that is above and beyond

17 December 2014

Henkel’s dedicated applications website for its Loctite anaerobic engineering adhesives leaves visitors in no doubt of the company’s commitment to continuous product development. Visitors to the homepage at are now met by two of the latest products to leave Henkel’s R&D laboratories with enhanced performance credentials.

The products are Loctite 638 and 648, which are time-served retaining adhesives for securing bearings, bushes and cylindrical parts into housings or on to shafts. Their recent re-formulation gives them maximum bond strength on all metals, improved temperature resistance and are oil tolerant. Cleaning is less critical and means both of these products can now be used for a broader range of applications.

The upgraded Loctite 638 and 648 retaining adhesives carry WRAS and DVGW approval for use in the water industry and now also P1 NSF certification, confirming they are food industry safe too. Full technical specifications on the products are on the website, as is expert guidance on their application. Visitors can also register to receive samples of both products.
