Unlike a traditional threadlocker which attempts to fix a fastener solidly in place; VC-3 works on the principle of vibration damping. VC-3 essentially isolates the fastener from the vibration of the assembly, absorbing any intense shock and vibration which keeps the fastener from rotating. However, when you try to remove a fastener coated with VC-3 with continual torque in a singe direction, because of VC-3′s viscous flow properties, it will eventually rotate out. But this action is not representative of vibration in a real use situation where the direction and velocity is of a more random pattern.
How can VC-3 lock a fastener in place if it can still be easily removed with hand tools?developmentvt
