The Precision Wire Stripper S produced by the Muenster-based manufacturer Weicon Tools has received the Red Dot Award 2020 for product design.
The Muenster-based producer of adhesives and sealants Weicon was honoured last weekend for being one of the best cooperation partners of the specialised technical trade. Weicon ranked 2nd among the producers of chemical products for the second time in a row.

The PVH is the Federal Association of Production Connected Trading, which many technical distributors are a member of who also cooperate closely with the Muenster-based family business.
The PVH confers the prize in cooperation with the Working Committee Tools (German: AKW) of the Central Association of Hardware Trade.

The producer of adhesives and sealants Weicon again belongs to Germany’s top employers among medium-sized companies. That was the result of a study carried out by the business magazine Focus-Business.
Weicon, manufacturer of specialty adhesives and sealants, is expanding its range of cyanoacrylate adhesives with a type that meets extreme requirements – Weicon VA 200 HR.
The one-component adhesive has a high moisture resistance and shows even after several days under constant influence of moisture and warmth the same high performance.
Weicon, manufacturer of specialty adhesives and sealants, is expanding its range of cyanoacrylate adhesives with a type that meets extreme requirements – Weicon VA 180 HT.
The one-component adhesive has been developed for high-temperature applications and is temperature-resistant up to +180°C. VA 180 HT is transparent and fast-curing, has a medium viscosity and is odourless.
The cyanoacrylate adhesive is suitable especially for the fixation of components, which are exposed to strong temperature fluctuations, for example when close to a running engine.
Weicon has developed a special casting compound that protects sensitive electronic components – Weicon Easy-Mix S 50 yellow.
Easy-Mix S 50 yellow is a highly reactive casting compound, which can also be used as an adhesive due to its high adhesive strength and fast cure.
The epoxy resin system is viscous, self-levelling and cures fast and with high impact resistance. The casting compound shows high adhesive strength and a short pot life of 4-5 minutes.
For the emergency repair of defective and damaged pipes and pipelines, Weicon designed a special set – the Weicon Pipe Repair-Kit.
1989, more than 30 years ago, Weicon Tools, manufacturer of stripping tools, developed a classic, the Coax-Stripper No. 2. Since then, the No. 2 has been one of the best-selling tools and is used all over the world for stripping various cables.
According to its 30th anniversary, two minor aspects of the stripper have been optimised in order to improve the performance and handling of the tool even further.
Weicon Tools, the tool division of Weicon GmbH & Co. KG, has extended the working range of the Coax-Stripper No. 1 F Plus by an additional module. Now it is possible to process thin cables in just one work step with the special tool for fast dismantling and stripping of coaxial cables.

Weicon has developed a special adhesive for aluminium and other light metals – Weicon Aluminium Minute Adhesive.
Aluminium Minute Adhesive is an odourless, two-component epoxy adhesive filled with aluminium. It has a short pot life of four to five minutes and cures fast at room temperature and practically without shrinkage. After curing, the adhesive can be machined (filing, drilling, milling). Aluminium Minute Adhesive is gap-filling and non-dripping (thixotropic) and shows very high tensile, impact and peel strength.
Weicon has developed a special fast-curing casting compound for applications, where high-precision results have to be achieved – Weicon Urethane 90 SF.

Urethane 90 SF is a two-component polyurethane that cures at room temperature to a high-strength material. The polyurethane has a very low viscosity and a high adhesive strength, is self-levelling, shows a permanently high static strength and cures practically without shrinkage.
It is temperature resistant from -60°C to +90°C.
Weicon GmbH & Co. KG has developed a new spray for applications in electrical engineering – Weicon Isolation Spray.
