Henkel Adhesive Technologies, through its Loctite brand, has formed a close partnership with the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team.
The collaboration began in 2021 when Martin Christall, Henkel application engineer, met the team to identify possible points of use where Loctite could further improve the performance and reliability of the team’s electric race car.
Different Loctite solutions are used to ensure mechanical reliability for a host of key applications, it noted, which extend from suspension bearings, gearbox housing parts and powertrain bolts to steering wheel components, a company statement said.
Martin said the strength and performance of Loctite adhesives was clear when used in Formula E, as adhesives are exposed to extreme loads, it added.
He added: “This puts a huge strain on all the parts. On top of that, there are the high temperatures, continual shock, and vibration to deal with.”
