ANAEROBIC adhesives are fast setting adhesives that cure in the absence of oxygen. These adhesives cure when the oxygen is cut off by the bond line and thus close fitting surfaces are desirable. Commonly used in thread lockers and machine fasteners.
Anaerobic adhesives not only lock all types of threaded fasteners, they are used to seal pipe fittings, retain bearings, pulleys, and gears to shafts as well as sealing flanged surfaces to replacing cut gaskets. The major users of these adhesives are the automotive, truck, construction and farming equipment companies. The actual market for these adhesives is anywhere that fasteners, gaskets, bearings or any mechanical device that needs to be secured or sealed are used in both OEM or MRO areas.
