As a vertically integrated company we are able to control overhead in all aspects of manufacturing. From R&D, to chemical blending and bottling and packaging services, we do it all.
Unlike mechanical methods like lock washers or nylon nuts, anaerobic threadlockers provide a seal against liquids and gases and resist vibration and thermal expansion. They are ideal for applications where a flexible, removable, and reliable seal is required.
Two conditions must be met for an anaerobic material to cure. 1) Absence of air. 2) Contact with metal ions. Loose fitting parts along with non-reactive metals like stainless steel can reduce a products’ effectiveness. In some cases primers can be used to counteract these negative effects. Once applied to a metal part and installed, the material begins to harden due to an absence of air. Over time the anaerobic liquid cures to a tough 100% solid thermo-set plastic, locking and or sealing the part in place.
Don't panic! Apply a solvent like acetone (nail polish remover), oil (vegetable or olive) to loosen the bond. Use shear forces if fingers are glued together, and do not pull apart. Once the glue is softened gently peel the glue away. If you spill superglue on a surface, you can use Vibra-Tite 642 CA remover.

Clean threads thoroughly with degreaser or rubbing alcohol. Avoid oils and lubricants.

Unlike traditional 2-part adhesives that require mixing before application, no-mix 2-step adhesives are applied as is and then activated with a separate activator, reducing preparation time.
Nickel-based anti-seize is often used in extreme temperatures and corrosive environments. It's ideal for stainless steel and other alloys. Copper-based anti-seize is suitable for high temperatures and protects against rust and corrosion. Aluminum-based anti-seize is commonly used for general-purpose applications, especially with aluminum parts.
Apply a thin, even coating to the threads or surfaces needing protection. Avoid over-application, which can attract dirt and lead to galling.
