New hybrid, emergency repair adhesive for highly durable bonds

30th January 2018

New to Henkel’s LOCTITE® Universal Structural Bonding range is LOCTITE® HY 4060 GY, a five-minute-curing, general-purpose repair adhesive for a wide variety of metals, plastics, wood and rubber materials. 

What makes this product so special is Henkel’s patented hybrid technology that, as well as providing universal adhesion, achieves a fast cure through a large gap, excellent structural and environmental durability.  It also has enhanced safety credentials.

Clearly faster fixturing means greater productivity, an important benefit to maintenance engineers seeking efficiency gains from the products and systems they use. As LOCTITE® HY 4060 GY cures so quickly, in a wide range of operating conditions and even at low temperatures, it is the ideal choice for fast and effective repair.  It also has good gap-filling ability – up to 5mm - and provides excellent resistance to moisture, temperature extremes and chemicals.

LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is a true universal structural bonding adhesive, a single product suitable for multiple applications that eliminates the need for a choice of products to meet all maintenance bonding needs.  And by comparison with its nearest competitor LOCTITE HY 4060 GY offers significant advantages for multi-substrate bonding and far greater durability at elevated temperatures.

This is an excellent general maintenance product that is particularly effective where a fast fixture is required on structures with variable gaps and mixed substrates. Typical applications range from bracket bonding and cable tie installation to the repair of plastic clips and lugs and the surface rebuilding of plastic and metal parts. LOCTITE HY 4060 GY is supplied in a 25ml, ready-to-use pack.
