Many design problems associated with threaded fasteners, press-fitted assemblies, and sealing of threaded and flanged assemblies can now be solved by using anaerobic liquid compounds. These one-part polyester resins convert from a liquid to form a tough, thermoset plastic material that completely fills the tolerance gap to augment thread locking, doubles the strength of press-fitted parts, and seals the "inner space" from environmental attack. These liquid compounds fill all surface irregularities, tolerance gaps, and effectively seal clearances up to 0.020 in. They can be applied by high-speed applicators on moving production lines while assuring controlled predictable strengths in metal-to-metal assembly applications at substantial cost savings over conventional methods. The cured polyester film provides excellent chemical resistance and resists most liquids and gases within an operating temperature range of -65-300 F (-55-150 C).
