In a busier sky than ever, the aerospace industry relies on strong partners capable of meeting its growing demands for more efficient and lightweighting composite materials with an uplift in global availability. Henkel answers these needs with the expansion of the company’s production facilities at Montornès del Vallès in Spain and a continuing focus on innovative solutions designed to enhance the sustainability and consolidation of composite structures.

Among the highlights exhibit (Hall 6, Booth M58) during JEC World 2019 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center from March 12 to 14, the company will present Loctite EA 9378 AERO, an innovative next-generation liquid shim material under development. “As a gap filler for use as an integral component in primary aerospace structures, the new grade builds on the proven weight and fuel saving benefits of our broad existing portfolio of Loctite liquid shim solutions, while offering even faster curing rates at ambient temperature,” explains Alessandro D’Angelo, Head of Sales Europe. “The material will help OEMs in the industry reduce both carbon emissions and manufacturing costs in a wide range of consolidated structural designs.”

Today, Henkel products are listed in over 5,000 aerospace specifications worldwide. In addition to the company’s liquid shim technology, further aerospace innovations on display at the JEC show will include Loctite potting compounds for honeycomb sandwich assemblies, high-quality Loctite surfacing films as well as various priming and surface treatment solutions. The comprehensive portfolio is complemented by Henkel’s extensive engineering expertise in the rapid development, validation and optimization of aerospace composite applications. Apart from test volumes of materials available for sampling, customers are also supported through dedicated test facilities at the company’s Düsseldorf (Germany) and Bay Point (California) sites.
