As global leader in adhesive technologies, Henkel is actively engaged in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup as an Official Sponsor with their LOCTITE® brand. With a track record of technical perfection and premium quality that few other companies can match, Porsche has a pronounced interest in working with innovative partners. Henkel’s strong customer focus and true pioneering approach in developing novel products make it an ideal choice.
The LOCTITE® products are tested by Porsche, giving them an excellent opportunity to prove themselves in practice – even under extreme conditions, such as in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. Ultimately, both companies benefit from this: Porsche gains access to the latest technologies, and Henkel can continuously channel the experience gained into its innovation processes. Individual products can thus be optimized on an ongoing basis to ensure the highest possible quality.
A good example of this successful collaboration is the design of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racing cars. Weighing only 1.175 kilograms, this model is an extremely light one. Such a lightweight construction can only be achieved by using materials like aluminum or composites that are held together by bonding solutions instead of thermal welding.
It is precisely here that the Porsche and Henkel engineers have found answers that have proven their worth both in the racing model and the series-produced Porsche 911 GT3. Using LOCTITE® adhesives opens up new design possibilities for the engine, gearbox and differential. This has produced impressive results in the areas of threadlocking, gasketing and sealing, thus improving the Porsche 911 GT3 still further. It is also thanks to this strong partnership that the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will again thrill an audience of millions.
