New range of Loctite handheld dispensers

Henkel has introduced its new range of Loctite EQ HD14 2K handheld dispensers, which it says provides users with the means to apply its two-component adhesives in all mixing ratios and viscosities.

The range comprises four models; two pneumatically-operated and two manually-operated dispensers for 200 or 400 ml cartridges.

All models are designed to directly replace existing Loctite 2K handheld dispensers and are compatible with all cartridge ratios; 1:1, 2:1, 4:1 and 10:1.

Conversion kits for all four ratios are included with each dispenser and cartridge kits are readily interchangeable between the manual and pneumatic models.

New on the manual dispensers is a dual drive rod mechanism and ratio selector switch for optimised dispensing performance.

The pneumatic version has a quick air exhaust mechanism to reduce drooling and increased dispense force to improve dispensing in high adhesive viscosity or flow applications. Improved overall ergonomic design is common to both types.
