Anaerobic Adhesives and Sealants

Anaerobic Adhesives and Sealants: Anaerobics are one-component adhesives that remain liquid when exposed to air. When confined between metal substrates, they cure or harden into tough thermoset plastics that provide excellent resistance to environment and temperature. T hey cure in the absence of air, in presence of metallic ions. Available in a wide range of formulations, anaerobic adhesives are commonly used for locking and sealing threaded assemblies, as well as retaining bearings and bushings on shafts or in housings. They also seal metal flanges in place of cut gaskets. These materials are often applied to enhance or replace mechanical joining methods, resulting in longer equipment service life and reduced manufacturing costs.
