Henkel presents its new Loctite MAX 5 matrix resin for carbon fiber reinforced composite wheels during JEC World 2018. The new technology is designed to replace aluminum in this demanding chassis application and builds on the introduction of Loctite MAX 2 for use in glass fiber reinforced leaf springs. The new resin combines high temperature resistance, toughness and long-term durability with rapid mold filling, thorough fiber impregnation and high curing rates for cost-efficient large volume production.

Suitable for high volume production and automotive industry

Another spotlight will be on the company’s new Loctite UK 2032 adhesive for multi-substrate designs, following the introduction of Loctite UK 2015 at last year’s JEC. Both adhesives are isuited for bonding structural parts made of composite materials with distinctly different coefficients of thermal expansion, from plastics to e-coated steel or aluminum.

Loctite UK 2032 and Loctite UK 2015 are specifically designed to meet automotive performance requirements as well as high volume production demands.
