Henkel added a tear-resistant, conformable molding compound to its line of Loctite ResinAid products for hearing aid shell and ear piece fabrication, assembly and repair. Loctite ResinAid 3596 cures on exposure to UV or visible light of the right intensity. The molding compound produces tear resistant, soft, conformable shells that are said to deliver improved comfort and durability in the ear canal.
