Structural adhesive and material solutions for high performance aircraft structures
Paste Adhesives for Aircrafts
Aircraft structural paste adhesives are used to bond aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, and composites either in rib-stiffened or honeycomb designs. Henkel provides the aircraft structural adhesive solutions you need: one- and two-part epoxy paste adhesive systems for potting, bonding, fairing, and repair in a range of packaging from a pudding cup to a two-part cartridge kit with static mixers.
Aerospace Potting and Edge-Fill Solutions for Honeycomb Structural Panels
To reduce weight aircraft primary and secondary structural components, honeycomb core structures are used between thin outer wall layers of various substrates to provide needed rigidity and strength. These honeycomb sandwich panels are used throughout the aircraft, in primary, secondary, and interior structures. Where added reinforcement, and particularly compression strength, is needed, potting compounds are used to fill the voids within the honeycomb core and to seal the edges.
As the leading global manufacturer of adhesives, Henkel offers a broad range of potting, edge fill, and encapsulating compounds for use with a variety of substrates, operating temperatures, and other environmental factors. Henkel’s aerospace portfolio provides manufacturers with honeycomb core potting and edge sealing requirements, a range of products that meet critical performance criteria and that are easy to apply and easy to store.
Aerospace Potting Compound Benefits:
- Improve mechanical strength
- Provide insulation and resistance to vibration and shock
- Prevent corrosion from moisture, thermal cycling, dust, and chemicals
- Include properties that make them well suited for use in aerospace applications
Potting compounds are available in both one and two component systems from low to medium density as well as in syntactic formulations. Syntactic materials provide structural performance with a lower density by mixing hollow or gas filled micro-balloons into the epoxy base material. These advanced materials are available in both paste and film form, and in expanding and non-expanding formulations.

Henkel’s LOCTITE FREKOTE release agents, sealers and cleaners are based on over 50 years of technical experience and are the most trusted for consistent release of composite parts from tools. These wax-and silicone-free release agents polymerize to create a low surface energy film which is durable, chemically resistant and thermally stable. A minimal transfer to molded components, minimized fouling, easy application and the highest number of releases possible per application are guaranteed.
