DELO, a manufacturer of industrial adhesives for automotive, consumer and industrial electronics, has broken the world record for the heaviest lift-using adhesive, Fastener+Fixing Magazine reports.

The company lifted a 17.5 ton truck, compared to the previous record of 16.3 tons, and has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the “heaviest weight lifted with glue.”

To achieve the record, a three-axle truck was lifted by crane to a height of one meter with only 3 grams of adhesive. The entire 17.5 ton weight hung for one hour on a bonded aluminum cylinder with a radius of just 3.5 cm – the diameter of a soft drink can. With the new record, DELO is 7% greater than the previous official record of 16.3 tons.

“The great result is an absolute team success, which also shows how we work every day,” stated Sabine Herold, managing partner of DELO. “We don’t shy away from challenges and we know our adhesives can live up to extremes.”

DELO undertook the challenge to demonstrate that its adhesive – DELO MONOPOX VE403728,  an epoxy resin that forms a dense network during heat curing – is the fastest, most versatile, and strongest adhesive in the world. The single-component, heat curing epoxy resins in this product group are known for their high strength applications in the automotive industry and mechanical engineering, according to Fastener+Fixing. Electric motors in e-cars would be inconceivable without such adhesives.

For more than 50 years, Munich, Bavaria-based DELO has manufactured industrial adhesives for high-tech industries such as automotive, aviation, optoelectronics, and electronics. The company has subsidiaries in the U.S., China, Singapore and Japan. Web:
