Designed for use on internal and external threads of virtually any material or finish. When you have Vibra-tite VC-3 Pre-Applied to your fasteners they arrive dry to the touch and ready for installation. Unlike many pre-applied threadlockers, VC-3 does not require heat for it’s application process which reduces the chance of degradation of the fastener or its finish.
Vibra-Tite VC-3 is a unique threadlocker in that it acts more like a vibration dampening compound than a traditional locking material. Once applied to a fastener and dried, VC-3 becomes a cold flow resin which when inserted into the mating part acts as a shock absorber, isolating the parts from each other and preventing the fastener from rotating out. Because it is a cold flow material, it does not form a hard lock, which makes it adjustable, removable and reusable.
Vibra-tite VC-3 adheres to both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, most platings, wood, and nylon, PPE, or PP plastics. Use on fasteners of any size or configuration.
Excellent Shelf Life
When in a cool and dry environment, parts coated with Vibra-tite VC-3 can be stored indefinitely before use.
Reliable, Powerful Lock & Seal
With exceptional reliability, Vibra-tite VC-3 holds parts in place even during extreme vibration and resists leakage by acting as a dam between mated threads.
Using steady pressure and standard hand tools, parts coated with Vibra-tite VC-3 can easily be adjusted, removed, and reused.
Since Vibra-tite VC-3 remains a thick, resilient, cold flow resin, its properties actually minimize galling or stripping of soft threads during reuse.
Offers resistance to most solvents (acts as a partial corrosion barrier) with total resistance to water and salt water.
Saves Time: Fasteners coated with Vibra-Tite VC-3 can be automatically fed through standard feeding devices.
Saves Money: Eliminates the need for costly lock washers, cotter pins, or castellated nuts. Moreover, Vibra-Tite VC-3 is less expensive than applying bottled threadlockers at the point of assembly.
Quality Control: Pre-Applied Vibra-Tite VC-3 parts are coated to specification, insuring consistent performance unlike bottled products.
Reduces Fatigue: Vibra-Tite VC-3 greatly reduces the need for retightening.
Pre-applied Vibra-Tite VC-3 is dry to the touch and ready for immediate use with no cure time.
Vibra-Tite VC-3 is a soft material and does not require any lead threads.
As with all our pre-applied products, ND Industries can apply Vibra-Tite VC-3 onto your fasteners at any one of our regional service centers, or we can supply you with fasteners that contain a pre-applied Vibra-Tite VC-3.
Vibra-Tite VC-3 can also be purchased for manual application (bottled product) from our Vibra-Tite Division.
* Recommended for Nylon, PPE & PP plastics only. ** Can be stored indefinitely when in a dry, cool environment.
Vibra-Tite VC-3 Competes With
N/A – Vibra-Tite VC-3 is a ND Industries exclusive product.
From tiny eyeglass screws to huge construction bolts, Vibra-tite VC-3 is ideal for use on fasteners of any size. VC-3 can serve as an alternative to ND Patch when low installation torques are required along with the need for adjustability and reusabilitly.
