2020 has undoubtedly been a challenging year with an unforeseen global pandemic creating a multitude of obstacles to overcome in all societies, cultures and countries. We send a special thanks to all of our frontline medical workers and scientists who continue to mitigate the damage and work vigorously to save human lives and help us to overcome this virus.
In addition to our global solidarity program, that provides financial and practical support for employees, customers and communities, Henkel continues to work closely with companies in the medical sector to support the production of scarce medical devices. In one such example, LOCTITE® 3D printed resins assisted in on demand swab production. In another application, Henkel conductive inks were used in the development of a smart health patch that allows remote, wireless monitoring of patient vital functions which is being tested for monitoring COVID-19 patients, in the future.
Although we face challenging times ahead, the humanitarian efforts, dedication and collaboration to uncover innovative, safe solutions continues to inspire!
