Flexible anaerobic gasket

ThreeBond has announced the release of its TB1133E anaerobic gasket. "We are building on the benefit of anaerobics to be dispensed and then permit component placement at leisure", explains ThreeBond's Mick Beeson.

"The product offers enhanced vibration tolerance and provides greater confidence in established applications such as gearboxes and cam covers while opening up uses in sealing of complex areas such as automatic transmissions. In particular, it is screen-printable so offers time savings compared to robotic dispensing on 2D shapes."

Compared with traditional anaerobic gaskets the product is stated to offer high elongation and "superior" gap-filling capacity, thus making it compatible with reduced machinery tolerances.

It will cure when compressed between metallic surfaces and isolated from oxygen. An elastic gasket is formed "in a very short time being completely adapted to the surface structure of the fitting surfaces".
