Additional Information

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

This product is also known as “Perma-Lok” A1046.

Surface Preparation Prior to Using Permabond A1046

Anaerobic adhesives can handle a bit of surface contamination, but for optimal results, ensure surfaces are clean, dry, and degreased. Consider using a suitable solvent-based cleaner, like acetone or isopropanol. Generally, roughened surfaces (~25?m) deliver stronger bond strengths than polished or ground surfaces. To cut down the curing time, especially on inactive surfaces such as zinc, aluminium, or stainless steel, you might want to use Permabond A905 or ASC10.

How To Use Permabond A1046

1) Preferably, apply a bead around the female component. Assemble it using a twisting motion.
2) For bigger components, use thixotropic products to stop any runoff.
3) Make sure the adhesive doesn't get into ball races or other mechanisms.
