Henkel Corp.'s two new Loctite Structural Acrylic
Adhesives are formulated to fixture in five to 20 mins and deliver peel and
shear strength once cured. Loctite H8100 and H8110 Speedbonder Structural
Adhesives provide tough, long-lasting bonds and are designed to reduce or
eliminate welds, rivets and threaded fasteners.
Both Loctite H8100 and Loctite H8110 Speedbonder
Structural Adhesives are green-colored, two-component acrylic adhesives that
cure rapidly at room temperature. Loctite H8100 fixtures in 20 mins, while
Loctite H8110 offers ultra-fast fixturing in five mins. Both adhesives feature
glass spacer beads that maximize toughness and prevent adhesive from squeezing
out of the joint during clamping. These products are available in 50 and
490 ml dual cartridges.
These structural adhesives provide shear strengths similar
to overlap welds and are stronger than spot welds and rivets. They can be used
in the assembly of agricultural/construction equipment, specialty vehicles,
appliances, signage, tubs/spas, building components and other industrial
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
