At the Filtech 2018, the system provider Sonderhoff, part of Henkel AG & Co. KGaA since July 2017, will present its product solutions for the filter industry. The two-component material systems for sealing, gluing and potting filter applications are applied directly to the filter components using Sonderhoff mixing and dosing systems. For example, the Fermadur polyurethane-based adhesive sealants presented at the trade fair stand are economically even more interesting if they are used foamed for the gluing and sealing of filter media, said the company. The density of the filter adhesive is thus lower and the material consumption is reduced by up to 50 %. This saves money and weight. However, the requirements for the adhesive and sealing properties continue to be met.
