PERMABOND A1046 Anaerobic Retaining Compound
Permabond A1046 is a rapid curing retaining compound designed to provide permanent locking and sealing of metal parts such as bearings, gears, pulleys and threaded components. It exhibits high strength and excellent durability, even under the most arduous conditions. Permabond A1046 helps joints resist vibration, fatigue and fretting corrosion, which allows machining tolerances to be relaxed and mechanical locking devices to be eliminated. Permabond A1046 will help reduce processing costs.
Features and Benefits
Ideal when bonding dissimilar materials
Improved fatigue life
Surface Preparation Prior to Using Permabond A1046
Though the anaerobic adhesives will tolerate a slight degree of surface contamination, best results are obtained on clean, dry and grease free surfaces. The use of a suitable solvent -based cleaner (such as acetone or isopropanol) is recommended. In general, roughened surfaces (~25μm) give higher bond strengths than polished or ground surfaces. To reduce the curing time, especially on inactive surfaces(such as zinc, aluminum, and stainless steel), the use of
Permabond A905 or ASC10 can be considered.
Directions for Use of Permabond A1046
1) Apply a circumferential bead; preferentially to the female component. Assemble with a twisting action.
2) For larger components use thixotropic products to prevent run off.
3) Take care to ensure adhesive does not enter ball races or other mechanisms.
