Retaining Compound

Available in high temperature grades and easily dispensed manually or automatically, our 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Retaining Compound products are ideal for bonding a variety of parts including bearings, shafts, hobs and bolts.

We offer a range of retaining compounds including high temperature and gas filling to make them suitable for a number of uses. They also come in a range of strengths and viscosities in order to meet the demanding engineering specifications that are sometimes required.

They increase the load bearing characteristics of cylindrical joints, reduce assembly stress, prevent corrosion, eliminate fretting and provide 100% contact to fill all voids.

High Temperature Retaining Compound

Our 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ High Temperature Retaining Compound products are high viscosity, thixotropic compounds which are designed to withstand high temperatures.

Key Features

These adhesives are the ideal solution when secure fits are needed to keep equipment and production up and running. The easy-to-use products save time and money because disruptive, unscheduled leaks and loose fasteners can be repaired quickly so any downtime is reduced.

These high strength products prevent loosening, fretting, corrosion and leakage which can be caused by shock and vibration. They are ideally suited to a number of industries including appliance, general industrial, construction, transportation, maintenance repair, heavy machinery, aerospace and agricultural equipment.

General Purpose Retaining Compound

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ RT01 is a single component, general purpose, anaerobic retaining compound. RT01 cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces. This retaining compound has an oil tolerant formulation ideal for bonding gears to shafts and is designed to augment strength of interference fit and press fit assemblies. RT01 also lubricates parts and prevents corrosion once assembled.

Gap Filling Retaining Compound

This single component, high viscosity product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces — making it an ideal gap filling retaining compound.

Key Features

Formulated to give high strength bonds to cylindrical parts, augment the strength of slip fit assemblies and for use on loose-fitting or worn parts where a larger gap fill is required.

This gap filling retaining compound is designed for high service temperature applications, prevents the corrosion of assembled parts and increases the load bearing characteristics of cylindrical joints.

Product Use

Designed to secure cylindrical metal assemblies such as bearings on shafts, bushings, sleeves, housings and keyways. Will achieve high bond strengths and is ideal for gap filling applications.
