Heldite has supplied a broad spectrum of industries both at home and abroad since 1922. Heldite is known worldwide in a growing export market.
Heldite jointing compound was originally formulated and developed for the aircraft industry and through its success in this application, the use of Heldite spread to all industries where there was a requirement for a high-performance jointing compound and sealant.
In its first ten years, Heldite was used successfully in the production of Bentley cars, on the record-breaking Flying Scotsman steam locomotive and the S6B Schneider Trophy seaplane – forerunner of the famous Spitfire.
Heldite was independently family owned until 2017 when it became part of Rustins.
