Providing a durable, reliable solution to the specific challenges that cylindrical bonding between two metal components can present, Loctite 648 High Strength Retaining Compound is a sealant that is suitable for a wide selection of industrial and construction purposes.
Once applied and allowed to cure, the compound provides a robust, long-lasting bond that’s resistant to both mechanical and chemical weakening.
- High-strength bond
- Can be handled five minutes after application
- Bonds metal to metal
- Anaerobic curing
- Low viscosity
- Suitable for continuous use up to 175°C.
No Mixing Required
Loctite 648 High Strength Retaining Compound is a single compound that does not need to be mixed or have a catalyst added to it. To reduce waste, the bonding adhesive can be applied directly from the container.
Loctite 648 Bond less than 5 minutes
After only five minutes, the Retaining Compound will develop a strong enough connection to allow the attached components to be handled. Curing time is around six hours.
Because the bond is produced via an anaerobic process, it is suitable for parts in an engine or other mechanical system that cannot be easily exposed to air to activate curing.
Great for Sprockets
The High Strength Retaining Compound is appropriate for nearly any mechanical or industrial application. Sprockets, gearbox shafts, attaching rotors on rotor shafts, and other similar applications are common.
As a fluorescent compound, it’s easy to see where it’s been applied, even in limited light conditions.
Resistant to Deterioration
Once the product has bonded, it’s immune to degradation from sunlight, moisture (either freshwater or saltwater), lubricants and oil.
Loctite 648 Suitable for Continuous use at High Temperatures
Loctite 648 is effective at temperatures ranging from -55°C to 175°C.
When a secure, long-lasting cylindrical bond is required, Loctite 648 High Strength Retaining Compound is a quick and easy answer. If you have any queries regarding this product, please contact our customer service staff.
