Born2Bond
Retaining

Single-component bonding solutions for cylindrical assemblies

Born2Bond Retaining anaerobic adhesives are a cost effective, adaptable alternative or addition to mechanical retaining processes. Capable of bonding all types of cylindrical assemblies, these single-component solutions also seal all metal joints to eliminate the risk of fretting corrosion. They achieve 100% surface-to-surface contact, producing a cohesive, durable connection capable of withstanding vibration, extreme temperatures and chemical substances.

A WL Anaerobic Range specially designed to enhance the work environment and ease the EHS (Environmental, Health and Safety) assessment of a new product without compromise on performance, is also available.*
