Retaining Compounds

Achieve strong and precise assembly by curing components and using retaining compounds

Even the toughest machines and equipment experience natural wear and tear. For this type of maintenance and repair, retaining compounds can be used to recondition worn out parts and re-establish proper fit of mating components. Acrylic-urethane-based retaining compounds can be used on most metals and are resistant to motor oil, ethanol, and unleaded petrol. Acrylic-ester-based retaining compounds, on the other hand, bond unlike metals and inflexible metal assemblies quickly and are resistant to brake fluid, acetone, unleaded gasoline, motor oil, and ethanol. These compounds likewise stop metal corrosion and fretting.
