Anaerobic adhesives are a good choice to augment the seal or holding force of a mechanically joined assembly. They serve as thread lockers, thread sealants, structural and instant bonders, retaining compounds and flange sealants.
When designed into an assembly, these products reduce component inventories, decrease total manufacturing costs, enhance equipment reliability and minimise aftermarket breakdown and associated warranty problems.
Loctite was the inventor of anaerobic adhesives for engineering tasks and continues to develop the technology to expand its scope of application. And to provide an overview of how these products can provide 100 per cent leakage safety Henkel has compiled a new guide.
Entitled ‘Adhesive & Sealant Solutions That Stop Leaks Before They Start’, this eight-page publication uses graphics to show the wide range of applications that benefit from its adhesives.
Particular attention is given to a range of fluid processing examples and specific products for machinery assembly. The guide also includes a handy chart that compares the pros and cons of common sealing methods.
