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.

Both adhesives can be purchased by calling 1-800-LOCTITE or at www.loctite.com.
