Back to Anerobic Adhesives

Retaining Adhesives are designed to bond non-threaded, cylindrical, metal assemblies by filling the voids between close-fitting metal parts. Retaining Adhesives harden to create a solid, one-piece assembly.

Retaining Adhesives can be used to lock keyways, secure splines, augment press fits, and strengthen interference fits. Use them to prevent wear on new components, or restore the fit to worn or out-of-tolerance parts. Retaining Adhesives seal joints against leakage and prevent fretting and corrosion. Formulated in a variety of viscosities, strength characteristics, gap-filling abilities, and temperature ranges,
