Solutions for Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul applications
Permabond has a very comprehensive range of adhesives suitable for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) applications. This includes:
Anaerobic threadlockers – for locking and sealing nuts and bolts to prevent vibration loosening, create a watertight seal and prevent components corroding together. Available in a range of strengths – dismantleable grades, high strength, permanent and high temperature resistant grades.
Anaerobic threadsealants (or pipesealants) – for sealing metal threaded pipejoints to prevent leakage. Drinking water and gas approved grades available. Easy to use – single part, helps lubricate joints for easy assembly and a 100% seal against liquids and gasses. Excellent chemical resistance.
Anaerobic gasketmakers – for creating form-in-place (FIP) gaskets – no need to use a pre-cut paper / cork / rubber gasket, one “size” fits all – make whatever shaped gasket you require. Will not “bed in” or need any adjustment after curing, will not degrade over time, no need to service or replace at regular intervals unlike conventional gaskets which can deteriorate. Ideal for use in gearbox reconditioning and other automotive repairs and parts remanufacturing.
Anaerobic retainers / retaining sealants – these are high strength, single component adhesives ideal for repairing spun bearings, sealing/ replacing brake cylinder linings, bonding collars to shafts and other metal to metal concentric joints. The adhesive can take up wide tolerances so can reduce machining time as interference fits are no longer required and tolerances can be relaxed whilst part performance is improved with better stress distribution and component protection.
Other MRO jobs can involve repairing trim, tamper-proofing and threadlocking plastic parts, these can be done quickly and effectively with Permabond cyanoacrylate adhesive.
