Adhesives & Sealants - April 2002
Machinery AdhesivesSUPERLOCK machinery adhesives provide reliable locking and sealing of nuts, screws, studs, bolts and other fasteners. They require no primers, exhibit excellent capillary action and gap filling, cure rapidly, and are resistant to chemicals and corrosion. Available in a range of grades/strengths (all of which qualify under appropriate military specifications), the threadlocking adhesives provide positive locking and sealing on both active and inactive surfaces in a multitude of applications. Circle No. 112
Anaerobic SealantThis company has introduced single-component, solvent-free anaerobic sealants TB1133B and 11N-001. The sealants set quickly and achieve good bonding strength and flexibility after curing. TB1133B has particularly good cured properties. 11N-001 features low skin irritation, while cured properties are equivalent to conventional anaerobic sealants. Circle No. 111
