Total leakage prevention 17 December 2019

Anaerobic adhesives are the ideal choice to augment the seal or holding force of a mechanically joined assembly. They serve as threadlockers, thread sealants, structural and instant bonders, retaining compounds and flange sealants. To provide an overview of how these products can deliver 100% leakage safety, Henkel has also compiled a new guide.

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. Henkel points out that LOCTITE® was the inventor of anaerobic adhesives for engineering tasks and continues to develop the technology to expand its scope of applications.

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 adhesives. Particular attention is given to a range of fluid processing examples and specific solutions for machinery assembly. The guide also includes a handy chart that compares the pros and cons of common sealing methods.
