better suited to fulfil your requirement.
LOCTITE retaining compounds offer an inexpensive and effective method to secure bearings, bushes and cylindrical parts into housings or onto shafts. Because LOCTITE retaining compounds are liquids, they take up the entire space between two close fitting cylindrical surfaces and harden into a tough thermoset plastic,to unitize the assembly. This increases the maximum load transmission capability of the assembly and eliminates fretting corrosion and expensive machining.
LOCTITE vs Interference
While interference fits might seem to deliver good contact, however, there is only 20%-40% actual metal-to-metal contact. LOCTITE can achieve 100% contact by filling the gap completely.
LOCTITE vs Keys and Splines
Keys and splines increase contact surface area, but do not eliminate the gaps which LOCTITE can fill completely.
LOCTITE vs Set Screws and Pins
Set screws and pins lock the surfaces together, but do not eliminate the gaps which LOCTITE can fill completely.
WHY CHOOSE LOCTITE RETAINING COMPOUNDS?
- Fills all microscopic gaps
and doubles the strength
of traditional fittings
No Fretting Corrosion:
- Seals against corrosion and
- Increases component life
Uniform Stress Distribution:
- Eliminates failure and
scrap due to stress cracking
- Ensures high torque transmission
Allow fitting of dissimilar metals:
- Used for fitting dissimilar
the threat of galvanic
- Allows for relaxed
slashing machining costs
HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT LOCTITE RETAINING COMPOUND?
To choose the best LOCTITE retaining compound, simply answer these three questions:
- What is the diametrical clearance?
- What is the shear strength?
- What is the temperature resistance?
