The “dual carbon” goal-striving to achieve carbon peaks by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060 is a major strategic decision of my country. The impact of the “dual carbon” target on various industries, and measures to achieve the “dual carbon” target and technological innovation have become hot topics of widespread discussion in different industries.
For the electronics industry, how does the “dual carbon” target affect manufacturers in the industry chain? Adhesives and related materials are important raw materials in the electronics manufacturing industry and semiconductor industry and are widely used. As one of the leading companies in this field, Henkel’s electronics industry solutions are closely related to the realization of the industry’s “dual carbon” goal.
During the 2021 SAMPE China Composites Exhibition held a few days ago, Henkel Global Vice President, Global Head of Aerospace and Rail Transportation Industry and Head of Electronic Materials and Industrial Market Asia Pacific Region Sheng Aibo, Henkel Aviation and Rail Transportation Industry Global Major Customers Xie Xinchen, head of the Asia-Pacific region, and Xie Wenjian, technical manager of Henkel’s aviation industry in the Asia-Pacific region, accepted an exclusive interview with AET reporters and gave an in-depth introduction to Henkel’s latest innovative solutions in the electronics and aviation-related fields and the sustainable development concept that Henkel has always adhered to.
Innovative technologies and solutions help aviation and rail transit industries to upgrade
Henkel’s Adhesives Technology business unit presented a variety of star products and comprehensive solutions for aerospace and rail transit at the exhibition, including improving the safety and sustainability of aircraft engine systems. LOCTITE EF 9890 AERO inflatable film to enhance aircraft Control panel durability and corrosion resistance LOCTITE HC 9872.1 AERO synthetic core material, as well as the LOCTITE and TEROSON series of adhesive sealing products that promote the lightweight and intelligent development of the rail transit industry.
Sheng Aibo introduced that what Henkel can provide customers with is a comprehensive solution, which is mainly based on the concept of sustainable development and environmental protection. For the aviation industry, Henkel’s main solutions are in structural bonding, interior decoration, surface treatment, as well as engine nacelles, and maintenance.
Sheng Aibo said that in addition to structural bonding and surface treatment, Henkel’s products and solutions have a wide range of applications in avionics, including thermally conductive materials. Urban public transportation is also a very promising industry for Henkel.
The concept of sustainable development runs through
Environmental protection and sustainable development are important topics on a global scale, and chemistry and material products have a deep-rooted close relationship in people’s minds. What are Henkel’s innovations in this area, and how to ensure that its products can meet the needs of environmental protection and can lead the competition? Xie Xinchen gave an answer to this.
He said that one of Henkel’s five values is sustainability. Henkel has released a sustainability report every year since 1992. In order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and slow down global warming, Henkel pursues a long-term vision of becoming a company that has a positive impact on the climate by 2040. Therefore, Henkel has always regarded environmental protection and sustainability as the prerequisites for development.
Xie Xinchen emphasized: “From the company to the customer, including all aspects of our own production, we have implemented environmental protection and sustainability as a very important strategy for our development.”
Facilitate the realization of the “dual carbon” goal
What impact does the “dual carbon” goal have on Henkel’s business? Does Henkel have corresponding plans and measures to further expand its business and consolidate its position in market growth?
In this regard, Sheng Aibo replied: “For Henkel, environmental protection and sustainability are very important, including two points. One is to become a rule maker. The other is to focus on customer needs. We are Two aspects can have an impact on it. One aspect is how Henkel can reduce carbon emissions in the process of transportation from production sites to customers. At the same time, reduce carbon emissions in the use of raw materials. The other aspect is Henkel’s help. Customers improve their carbon emissions by starting from Henkel’s product formulas.
Sheng Aibo introduced that Henkel has just released a new company vision called “Pioneers at heart for the good of generations”. The implication is that Henkel will build a meaningful future for the next generation based on pioneering spirit, expertise and resources. Rely on innovation and technology to create value for customers and consumers, guide the team to success, and make the world a better place.
