3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Retaining Compound RT38 is a single component, highest strength anaerobic retaining compound. RT38 cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Retaining Compound RT38 is formulated for bonding cylindrical parts, to give very high strength bonds. Typical applications include locking sleeves onto shafts. RT38 is designed to augment the strength of press fit and slip fit assemblies. Once applied, parts slip together easily, lubricated by the adhesive. RT38 prevents corrosion of assembled parts.
