MATERIALS: A new 10-page, full-color brochure from Henkel Corp. the Loctite Threadlocking User’s Guide, provides detailed information on anaerobic threadlocking adhesives and their advantages over mechanical locking devices for preventing fastener loosening. The literature highlights the company’s line of Loctite(r) threadlocking adhesives, and uses text, illustrations and images to explain how and when they can be used to ensure fastener reliability.
The brochure contains information on: how threaded assemblies work and why they fail; the shortcomings of mechanical locking devices; how threadlockers work and the benefits of the technology; how to select and apply threadlocking adhesives; and when to use primers.
The Loctite Threadlocking User’s Guide contains a detailed, two-page application and substrate-based selector guide. By answering specific questions within the selector, the reader can determine the Loctite(r) threadlocker that is best for their specific application. Products included are low strength purple threadlockers, removable medium strength blue threadlockers, permanent high strength red threadlockers, and wicking grade green threadlockers. The literature also highlights the latest innovations in threadlocking adhesives including semisolid sticks, new QuickTape(tm) 249(tm) Threadlocker Tape, products that withstand elevated temperatures, and products formulated with enhanced lubricity for large fasteners.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
