Henkel Brings Aerospace Materials into Focus

New Production Facility in Spain

To serve this growing demand for high-impact solutions in the market, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Düsseldorf, Germany, has started the construction of a new production facility for aerospace materials at its site in Montornès del Vallès, Spain.

The facility will include new buildings and equipment for additional production and warehouse capacities to further support key trends in the industry such as light weighting and automation. Due to the proximity to several sites of global key customer Airbus, Montornès will become Henkel’s European hub for the aerospace industry.

Boeing and Airbus forecast a worldwide demand for up to 40,000 new aircrafts over the next two decades. With a 10-year production backlog and new aircrafts increasingly counting on lightweight composites, both Henkel’s expertise in process automation and its high-impact solutions for the aerospace industry are in high demand. “The aerospace industry has a growing demand for consolidated structural designs capable of providing significant reductions in weight, fuel consumption and CO₂ emission as well as manufacturing time and system cost,” says Ron Habermas, Global OEM Market Development Manager for Henkel.

In line with the rising demand Henkel has developed new Loctite potting compounds for honeycomb sandwich assemblies used in the aerospace industry. Particularly in terms of micro-cracking resistance, density/strength ratio and flame retardancy, these advanced materials feature major improvements over conventional potting compounds. Typical applications include primary and secondary structures, such as fuselage and wing components, as well as interior panels.
