Three questions about sutainability at Adhesive Technologies
Henkel is the global market leader in adhesives. However, it is often not easy to recognize where these products are applied.
With our comprehensive technology portfolio, our Adhesives business is the leading solution provider worldwide. We act as a partner and source of expertise for our customers, and we are active in a large variety of markets. These include the packaging, metals, automotive and electronics industries, as well as aerospace applications. Our products are included in many things where one might not automatically expect to find them – from packaging, books, cell phones and furniture through to shoes, cars and airplanes.
And how do adhesives help make these more sustainable?
Our aim is to develop innovative solutions that deliver in terms of both performance and resource efficiency. Our adhesives help to save energy by making cars and aircraft lighter, as well as by insulating buildings better. We also play a part in making production processes more efficient. Our Loctite GC 10 solder paste is an example of this: It not only creates substantial value for ourselves and our customers – it also generates significant benefits in terms of energy use, thereby contributing to resource efficiency.
What potential do you see in the development of sustainable products and technologies in your business unit?
We see sustainability as a megatrend that will accelerate the development and use of new adhesive technologies, for example in areas such as the automotive industry. Our Bonderite brand already enables our automotive customers to achieve major cuts in waste volume and energy use in their manufacturing operations. It is only by introducing innovations like these that we can continue to meet our customers’ requirements in the future.
