Some Extra Detail

Permabond® A1042 is a rapid curing medium viscosity medium strength anaerobic adhesive designed to lock and seal metal parts which may need to be dismantled later for maintenance. This grade has high vibration resistance which makes it particularly suited to replacing lock-washers, split-pins and other mechanical locking devices. The well proven chemical resistance of A1042 will reduce the effects of corrosion and make it suitable for sealing hydraulic and pneumatic fittings. Also suitable for use with galvanised zinc coated steel.

Surface Preparation Prior to Using Permabond A1042

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 A1042

1) Prevent the tip from touching the metal surface.
2) On through holes, apply a bead across the contact length of the threads.
3) For blind holes, apply several drops to the bottom of the hole.
4) Assemble and torque as required.
