What is the thread locking

2024-01-30

Thread locking is the process of applying a chemical adhesive to fasteners, such as screws, nuts, and bolts, to prevent them from loosening due to vibration or other external forces. There are various types of thread locking chemical adhesive available, each designed for specific applications and requirements.

One of the most common types of thread locking adhesives is the anaerobic adhesive. Anaerobic adhesives are designed to cure in the absence of air and in the presence of metal ions. This makes them ideal for locking threaded fasteners in place, as they only cure when confined between metal surfaces. Once cured, anaerobic adhesives create a strong bond that prevents the fastener from loosening, while still allowing for disassembly when necessary.

Thread locking of screws, bolts and nuts is a crucial process in the manufacturing and assembly of various products. Whether it's in the automotive industry, aerospace, or consumer electronics, thread locking is essential for ensuring the stability and reliability of the finished product.
