LOCTITE 460

Known as Loctite 460 Prism Instant Adhesive

Features and Benefits

LOCTITE 460 Instant Adhesive is a low viscosity, single component, ethyl cyanoacrylate product with a low bloom and low odor formula that is particularly suitable for absorbent surfaces.
LOCTITE® 460 Instant Adhesive is a transparent and colorless liquid that offers rapid bonding for a wide variety of materials, including metals, elastomers, and plastics. LOCTITE 460 adhesive is designed for applications where vapor control is difficult. It is also well suited for bonding porous or absorbent materials.
  • Low bloom for cosmetic applications
  • Low odor for applications where vapor control is vital
  • Low viscosity
  • Rapid bonding (5 – 20 secs., depending on substrate)
  • Well suited to porous substrates

How to

Step by Step Guide

1. Preparation - Cleaning

It is recommended to use the correct LOCTITE® cleaner for the surface to be bonded (such as LOCTITE® SF 7070™) to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying the adhesive.

2. Preparation - Priming

To improve adhesion on difficult to bond plastic surfaces, apply LOCTITE® SF 770™ to the bond area by brushing or dipping. Avoid applying excess primer. Allow the primer to dry.

3. Preparation - Activation

If cure speed is too slow, use appropriate activator LOCTITE® SF 7452™. Apply activator to one bond surface by spray, brush or dipping (not primed surfaces). Allow the activator to dry.

4. Application

Apply adhesive to one side or part.Recommended dispensing equipment: for precise dispensing of small amounts of adhesive, use dispensing needles.

5. Assembly

Assemble parts immediately. The parts should be accurately located as the short fixture time leaves little opportunity for adjustment. Bond should be held or clamped until the adhesive has fixtured. Hint: if necessary, excess product can be cured by activator LOCTITE® SF 7452™. Spray or drop activator onto excess product.
