Industrial maintenance requires fast and firm adhesion of substrates and materials such as plastics, metals, and rubber. The advent of instant adhesive allowed for quick bonding between two surfaces—ready to use in three minutes and continuing to strengthen with time achieving optimal strength within 24 hours of application.  

Instant adhesive can be used for joining metals and creating durable bonds on components that will be subjected to extreme environmental conditions such as high shock loads, pressure, or extreme temperatures. 

Using instant adhesive has many advantages for manufacturers including speeding up production time and providing greater flexibility when it comes to designing components for several different fields—aerospace, military, and transportation, to name a few—are ideal for maintenance, repairs, and overhaul.

A high-performance bonding champion in its own right — LOCTITE® Instant Adhesive is a first choice for manufacturers and maintenance workers, brought to market by world leading experts in instant bonding technology.
