A pair of cyanoacrylate adhesives from Henkel Loctite Corp. provide flexibility for applications that must withstand vibration, impact and fatigue loads. Loctite 4851 and Loctite 4861 are supple enough to attach to flexible substrates such as tubing, o-rings, rubber, paper, leather and fabric. The instant adhesives are clear, with formulations that provide reduced hardness and improved thermocycling resistance. These single component adhesives will bond a wide range of metal, plastic or elastomeric materials and are particularly suited for use on flexible, porous or absorbent substrates like those used in medical devices and loudspeaker components. They can also be used with delicate substrates. Both products are pending ISO 10993 biocompatibility compliance for use in medical device applications.
Loctite 4851 is a medium-viscosity adhesive for general purpose bonding. Loctite 4861 is a high-viscosity adhesive for porous and absorbent materials.
