Henkel operates worldwide with leading brands and technologies in three business areas: Laundry & Home Care, Cosmetics/Toiletries and Adhesive Technologies.
Founded in 1876, Henkel holds globally leading market positions both in the consumer and industrial businesses with well-known brands such as Persil, Schwarzkopf and Loctite.
Henkel, headquartered in D?sseldorf / Germany, has about 50,000 employees worldwide and counts among the most internationally aligned German-based companies in the global marketplace.
Henkel has three globally operating business sectors:
Team / Manpower
Kasper Rorsted Chief Executive Officer,
Thomas Geitner Executive Vice President
Dr. Friedrich Stara Executive Vice President
The 28-year-old Fritz Henkel and his two partners founded the company Henkel & Cie in Aachen on September 26, 1876. Its first product was a washing powder based on water-glass. In contrast to all similar products, which at that time were sold loose, this heavy-duty detergent was marketed in handy packets.
Henkel bought a plot of land on the Gerresheimer Straße in Düsseldorf-Oberbilk. In October 1880 the Company started to build a new factory.
In Hannover, Germany, Ferdinand Sichel (1859 - 1930) succeeded in making the world's first ready-to-use decorator's glue. Henkel acquired the Sichel Werke AG Hannover in 1962.
In Chemnitz, Theodor Böhme founded a business selling pharmaceuticals, dyes and technical products. In 1902, the company started to produce its own floor polish under the brand name Cirine and in 1906 a chemicals factory to manufacture sulfonated oils and fats was built. Henkel acquired a shareholding in the company Böhme Fettchemie, Chemnitz, in 1935 and took over the remaining shares in 1941.
In late June, 19 Henkel factory workers were obliged to join the "Allgemeine Fabrikarbeiter-Unterstützungskasse in Düsseldorf" [general factory workers' support fund in Düsseldorf]. In 1883 statutory general health insurance liability was introduced in Germany, and in 1884 the Gemeinsame Orts-Krankenkasse Düsseldorf [Düsseldorf joint local sickness benefit fund] was established, which all factory workers joined.

Henkel at the 25th EU PVSEC
Conductive Adhesive Innovations Advance Solar Module Assembly Capability
From Hall 1, Level 3, Stand A14 at the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) in Valencia, Spain, Henkel will display some of the company’s most recent innovations in electrically conductive adhesive (ECA) technology. These latest advances address the low stress, faster cure speeds and lower temperature curing requirements for modern thin-film and crystalline silicon (c-Si) module assembly and, when paired with Henkel’s global support network and materials expertise, provide an unmatched solution for today’s photovoltaic manufacturing specialists.
Reducing module stress, particularly at the tabbing ribbon connection points, is key to high yield production and module in-field reliability but, to date, materials such as solder and high-temperature cure ECAs haven’t been able to effectively deliver on these demands. Henkel, however, has developed two ECAs that solve these issues.
The first, HYSOL ECCOBOND CE3103WLV, is an electrically conductive adhesive designed for assembly of thin-film solar substrates and overcomes challenges with unstable contact resistance posed by older-generation ECAs. Based on research that concluded electrochemical corrosion on copper and tin in elevated temperature and humidity conditions was the primary culprit of contact resistance instability, Henkel developed a new ECA to overcome this challenge. By introducing advanced corrosion inhibition characteristics into HYSOL ECCOBOND CE3103WLV, the material enables stable electrical contact resistance between transparent conductive oxides (TCO) and tin terminations through 1000 hours of 85°C temperature at 85% relative humidity (RH). This advance allows manufacturers to now employ a low temperature process, thus reducing energy consumption and device stress, all while maintaining superior electrical and adhesion performance.
Also part of Henkel’s portfolio of solar ECA solutions is its latest breakthrough, HYSOL ECCOBOND CA3556HF. As an alternative to traditional solder connections used for c-Si solar modules which can be problematic for emerging thin, fragile solar cells, HYSOL ECCOBOND CA3556HF has been formulated to deliver low temperature curing at 150°C and an exceptionally fast cure time of five seconds. The award-winning material provides an excellent bond between the Ag and SnPbAg coated tabs and the c-Si cells, delivering a stable and reliable electrical connection over the life of the module. But, it’s not just c-Si processes that benefit from HYSOL ECCOBOND CA3556HF; thin-film module manufacturers have also successfully incorporated this material into processes that dictate low-stress, fast curing interconnection of cells and ribbons.
“As solar technology advances, so must the material sets used to facilitate higher efficiency, improved reliability and greater yield,” explains Tom Adcock, Marketing Manager for Henkel. “The latest ECAs from Henkel have addressed all of these requirements and then some. With Henkel’s vast knowledge base and engineering expertise at their core – not to mention being backed by a world-class global support network – HYSOL ECCOBOND CA3556HF and HYSOL ECCOBOND CE3103WLV are raising the bar on ECA performance for thin-film and c-Si module assembly.”
With manufacturing centers of excellence around the globe and a worldwide staff of solar materials experts, Henkel is positioned to deliver leading-edge support resource wherever and whenever it is required.
