Henkel Adhesive Technologies


In water, air, and other fluid systems, industrial adhesives are required to separate the feed from the filtrate. Henkel systems and technology maximize the efficiency of this separation and improve filter performance for spiral wound elements, hollow fiber modules, carbon block filters, and pleated filters.
