Loctite®, a brand of Henkel Corp., is introducing two new low-energy, tack-free light cure adhesives specially formulated for plastic and metal or glass bonding. The Loctite 3944™, a fluorescent, low-odor product, was designed specifically for bonding a selection of plastic substrates that need a tough, flexible bond. The Loctite 3526™, a colorless adhesive, cures rapidly when exposed to UV/visible light or heat to also form a tough, flexible bond. Both adhesives can be purchased by calling 1-800-LOCTITE or at www.loctite.com.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
