retaining compounds

Bondloc Retaining Compounds have an anaerobic cure system. Anaerobic means it cures in the absence of air and the presence of metal ions. The resin remains liquid until it is confined between metal parts. Using Bondloc Retainers when mounting cylindrical parts has distinct advantages over mechanical assemblies. Using retaining compounds allows a manufacturer to use slip-fitted parts with relaxed machining tolerances.

Conventional methods used in the assembly industry are positive drive (pins, keys and splines), friction drive (press-fit, shrink fit)

and welding/soldering. These methods have shortcomings such as fretting corrosion that causes a lower torque transmitting capability, and their machining is costly and lengthy to meet the right assembly tolerance.

Key Points

  • Increase assembly reliability
  • Eliminate backlash in keys and splines
  • Increase strength of heavy press fits
  • Eliminate fretting corrosion
  • Seal against environmental corrosion
  • Eliminate high assembly stresses
  • Reduce variations in load transmission
