Corp. has reformulated and reintroduced Loctite 243 Threadlocker to
withstand temperatures up to 360F, cure consistently without primers and
tolerate contamination from thread lubrication, anti-corrosion and protection
fluids. Designed for locking and sealing fasteners that may need to be
disassembled during their service life, this anaerobic threadlocker now
provides enhanced performance on both active and passive metal surfaces
including steel, stainless steel and plated materials.
Medium viscosity Loctite 243 prevents loosening and
leakage from shock and vibration on fasteners from 1/4 to Â¾ inch in diameter. This thixotropic liquid threadlocker will not migrate
once applied to a fastener's surface. Loctite 243 fixtures in 5 minutes and
achieves full cure in 24 hours when confined in the absence of air between
close fitting metal surfaces.
Fasteners assembled using removable-strength Loctite 243
can be disassembled using standard hand tools. This threadlocker is registered
to NSF Category P1, and can be used in and around food processing applications.
Loctite 243 is available in 0.5 ml capsules, 10 ml tubes and 50 ml, 250 ml or 1
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
