Thread Locking Adhesives

TL SeriesTorque™ Thread Locking Adhesives for Fast Permanent Assembly

Adhesive Systems has the thread locking adhesives to increase the productivity and reliability of your assembly process. Threadlockers are single component, solvent free adhesives (anaerobics) that cure in the absence of air and in the presence of metal ions. Our Torque™ products and adhesives represent state of the art anaerobic technology, with world class performance. The thread locking sealants are manufactured to provide specific viscosities, strengths, and cure speeds to meet any application requirement. They distribute the load on a fastener over the entire engagement length of the assembly thereby greatly reducing or completely eliminating fastener and material fatigue.


Our thread locking products work hard to lock and seal threaded fasteners for your assembly applications from delicate electronic devices and appliances to heavy industrial equipment. These anaerobic resins prevent loosening and shock from vibration, while locking and sealing threaded assemblies and metal parts. They prevent rust and corrosion that could jeopardize threaded areas. They have excellent resistance to extremely harsh environments; and they significantly reduce production costs.

We offer Torque™ products that will lock and seal the smallest screws, as well as a thread locking compounds for all your bolts and other porous metal parts. Even for what seems to be the tightest fitting assembly, there are small voids which over time will cause the shifting and loosening of parts. For small metal screws in electronic devices and assorted appliances, our thread lockers can fill the smallest voids. For the larger metal threaded fasteners in large machinery and transportation equipment, high temperature thread locking sealants provide permanent thread locking with resistance to extremely high operating temperatures. This durability and versatility ensures our adhesives will meet your specific application requirements.

Adhesives in Wall Climbing

Written by Brian Steeves on . Posted in Adhesives, Methacrylates

I sell adhesives, but I’m amazed at the sheer number of applications that I find.  Just recently, I was searching for a hollow wall anchor for a wall-climbing setup that a group of volunteers is building at Christ the King School.  When I called my trusted source for anchors and fasteners, he recommended an epoxied-in threaded rod method.  Hmm.  It’s easy, very solid, doesn’t require high-tech or costly equipment, and just as important… it’s low cost.

The idea is very simple:  Drill a 5/8” hole that’s 1” deep into the masonry wall (avoid the grouted areas if possible).  Make sure to remove all of the dust from your drilled hole using compressed air for best results.   Fill the hole halfway with epoxy (we’d recommend Adhesive Systems MP 5405NS Maximum Performance 2 part epoxy), insert the threaded rod piece.  In this case, we’re using 2 1/2” lengths of threaded rod, so that they’re flush with the 2×4 we’re attaching to the wall.  Wiggle the threaded rod around in the epoxied hole to make sure that the epoxy fills up the threads, and evenly fills the hole.  You’ll have to work fairly quickly, as this epoxy sets in only 3-5 minutes.  Allow the epoxy to cure for about 30 minutes to ensure that it’s solid (though it only really takes 5-10 minutes).. and attach the panels to the wall.  EASY!

IMG00089-20101122-1124Still not convinced this is a good solution?  We tested it!

We took a cinder block, and drilled a 5/8” x 1” deep hole.  Once the glue had cured for an hour, we subjected it to the most destructive of testing methods.  We hit the exposed threaded rod with a hammer!  Our intent was to see how many hits it would take to break either the bolt, the cinder block or the adhesive.  This was a lot of fun, except that nothing broke!

With at least 10 solid hits to the exposed threaded rod, all we managed to do was destroy the threads, and bend the 1/2” diameter threaded rod. The epoxy held firmly in place.  Awesome stuff!

Draw Latches

Written by Brian Steeves on . Posted in Draw Latches, Latches

Draw latches are great for lids or covers that are drawn together, along the same plane. 

 

Versa Latch Southco’s V2 series draw latches are very strong, but very forgiving.  The spring coils mounted on the sides of the latch provide some shock protection.  If your application is subject to a lot of vibration or sudden impacts, this might be a good option for you. 
Available in steel and stainless steel.
CH-4000 Series Draw Latch Another commonly used draw latch is this one- all the strength of Southco’s V2, but no springs (some people just aren’t fans of the springs).  Easy to install, easier to use.  Available in a range of finishes, too.
97 Series Latch Southco’s 97 series draw latches are as pretty as they are functional.  With dozens of variations available, you can be assured that there’s a version that will fit your application.  Available in bright chrome finish or polished stainless, with options for padlocking, wire sealing, secondary catches and more.  Check them out!
A1 Adjustable Draw Latch In the market for a heavier solution?  There aren’t many adjustable draw latches our there, and surely none as nice as these.  The comfortable vinyl grips make these a pleasure to work with.  Available in three sizes, all have the option of yellow grip, or plain.
Flexible T Handle Latch The Flexible (rubber) T-handle latch can be seen all over the place.  Used on battery boxes, toolboxes and more, this “standard” latch is available in 5 different sizes, three different styles, some with the option of stainless steel hardware. 
Wire Bail latches and Strikes Wire Bail latches are clean, simple, and inexpensive!  They’re also available in a range of styles (straight bail, curved bail, locking, non-locking), finishes and materials. 
Under Center Latch We also have a range of “under center” draw latches!  These provide a different feel, but still offer mechanical assistance for drawing panels together.  Available in Steel, Stainless and even a Black Powder Coat, with a host of options that includes concealed or exposed bases, secondary catches, and padlocking.
K5 Link Locks The K5 Link Lock has been around for years.  Link Locks, or “Butterfly Locks” are great for panels that may be subject to vibration or accidental opening.  Once engaged, these latches will not open up by accident.  They’re also great for applications where the panels aren’t always in alignment. Link locks can latch easily even when at an angle.
K4 Link Locks The K4 Link Lock is the Medium-sized option for the link lock family.  All link locks are available with springs (as shown here) to provide shock-absorbent protection against impact, misalignment or high vibration.  There’s also a stylized version of this latch available in black powder-coat or in stainless.
K3 Link Locks The K3 link lock is the smallest of the link locks, yet it still boasts up to 300 lbs of tensile strength before breaking!  Available with or without springs, in stainless or steel with zinc plating.
