Known as Loctite 460 Prism Instant Adhesive

Features and Benefits

A low-odor, low-bloom, low viscosity instant adhesive ideal for aesthetic applications.
LOCTITE® 460 is a low odor, low bloom, instant adhesive. This low viscosity adhesive is ideal for applications where odor and/or blooming are a concern. LOCTITE 460 provides for rapid bonding of metals, elastomers and plastics, including difficult-to-bond plastics (PP, PE, PTFE) when used in conjunction with a primer such as LOCTITE SF 770.
  • Low odor for applications where vapor control is vital
  • Low bloom for cosmetic applications
  • Low viscosity
  • Bonds plastics, rubbers and metals

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 activator LOCTITE® SF 7452™ or LOCTITE® SF 7455™ (see cure speed vs activator graph in TDS). Apply activator to one bond surface by spray, brush or dipping (not primed surfaces). Allow the activator to dry.

4. Application

Apply adhesive onto one side/part.

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.


For precise dispensing of small amounts of adhesive, the use of dispensing needles is recommended.
