Innovative Loctite instant adhesives offer new fields of application

Loctite 403, 408 and 460 are three improved instant adhesives from Henkel that can be used for bonding virtually any materials. Already market leaders in terms of health and safety, these products now offer even better performance.

The three Loctite instant adhesives are suitable for bonding almost all materials, from plastic through metal to rubber. Thanks to a special formulation, they do not irritate the skin, nor does their safety data sheet list any hazard symbols or chemical substances that pose a risk to health. In launching these improved products, Henkel is strengthening its portfolio of innovative solutions with regard to occupational health and safety. The improved formulation has higher moisture tolerance and leads to a longer lasting bond.

Low odour and low bloom

Like their forerunner products, the three new adhesives are particularly low odour, which makes them significantly more pleasant as far as users are concerned. Indeed, the innovative trio is ideal for use in poorly ventilated areas. Low bloom is another important attribute: no white edges form that impair the visual appearance of the workpiece. This means that the three new Loctite instant adhesives can also be used wherever aesthetic perfection is called for.

Easy to use and with different viscosities

All three products are suitable for the rapid fixing and permanent bonding of almost all materials, including plastics, metals and rubber. A Loctite Primer is required for materials that are difficult to bond. The new formulations are also ideal for bonding porous materials such as wood, paper, leather, cork and fabric. They are capable of resisting temperatures between minus 40 degrees Celsius and 80 degrees Celsius; clarity is another noteworthy product attribute.

The primary difference between the three innovations is their viscosity. While Loctite 403 has very high viscosity, at 1200 mPa s (millipascal-seconds), Loctite 460 offers low viscosity (40 mPa s) and Loctite 408 very low viscosity (5 mPa s). The new instant adhesives are straightforward to use. Because the pack size has not changed, customers can continue using their existing application devices and systems without any conversion measures.

Loctite 403 and Loctite 460 are available in bottles of 20g, 50g and 500g. Loctite 408 is available in bottles of 20g and 500g.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
