Henkel has introduced its Loctite Structural Adhesives and NVH Selector Guide. This 30-page brochure is designed to educate readers about the performance of structural adhesives in demanding, high-stress applications, and to communicate their ability to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. The brochure is divided into three sections: considerations for selecting a structural adhesive; chemistries and products; and a review of dispensing equipment. The guide includes a tutorial on adhesive joint design for stress reduction and presents a performance and process overview in a table format of the four main structural bonding technologies: epoxies, urethanes, two-part acrylics and two-step acrylics. The section on NVH offers an overview of adhesives for acoustic, seam sealing and bonding applications, focusing primarily on the agricultural, construction, specialty vehicle and appliance markets. The brochure also includes a two-page chart identifying dispensing applicators and nozzles designed for use with structural adhesive technologies. A copy of the selector guide can be downloaded at www.henkelna.com/loctitestructurals.
