Loctite 6300 is a high strength, label-free retaining compound. The product is dimethacrylate ester-based and green in colour. It is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts. Typical applications include holding gears and sprockets onto gearbox shafts and rotors on electric motor shafts. Loctite 6300 is part of the Health and Safety anaerobic range. It carries no hazard symbols, risk or safety phrases and does not contain any noxious substances.
Loctite 6300 cures when confined between close-fitting metal surfaces. The curing process occurs in the absence of air. The rate of cure depends on substrate, bondline gap and temperature. The product prevents loosening and leakage due to shock and vibration.
- High strength
- Low viscosity
- Good temperature resistance
- No hazard symbols, no risk phrases and no safety phrases
- Compressive shear strength > 15 N/mm²
How to use Loctite 6300:
- For best results, clean surfaces with a Loctite solvent. Allow it to dry.
- If using on inactive metal or curing speed is too slow, use an activator spray such as Loctite SF 7471 or SF 7649. Allow it to dry.
- For slip fitted assemblies. Apply adhesive around the leading edge of the pin and the inside of the collar. Use a rotating motion during assembly to ensure good coverage.
- For press fitted assemblies. Apply adhesive thoroughly to both bond surfaces. Assemble at high press on rates.
- For shrink fitted assemblies. Apply adhesive onto the pin. Heat collar to create sufficient clearance for free assembly.
- Allow Loctite 6300 to develop full strength before subjecting to any service loads. This will usually take about 24 hours.
Store Loctite 6300 in the unopened container in a dry location. Optimal Storage: 8° C to 21° C. Storage below 8° C or greater than 28° C can adversely affect product properties.
