ND Microspheres Acrylic is a process in which microencapsulated, room temperature curing acrylic threadlocking adhesives are applied to male or female threaded fasteners of virtually all sizes, materials and finishes. Acrylic threadlockers offer consistent and predictable torque values and require no heat or primers for curing.
After choosing ND Microspheres Acrylic processing, have your parts sent to one of ND’s service centers. ND will then apply a microencapsulated activator suspended in a quick curing waterborne resin. This material dries on the part and is then shipped back to the customer for use. When installed, the shearing forces caused by engagement with a mating part release the activator and allow it to mix with the resin. The resulting chemical reaction rapidly bonds the surfaces, locking the parts together and sealing leak paths.
Processed parts resist and seal against most automotive fluids. Oil, water, antifreeze, and gasoline have virtually no effect on performance once the final cure has been achieved.
ND Microspheres Acrylic processing can be specified in a variety of colors for easy part inspection and in different strengths to fit the desired application.
ND applies material formulations which are specifically intended for use in high temperature or torque/tension sensitive applications.
After installation parts typically fixture in under 5 minutes. However to reach full strength it is recommended to allow a full cure of 72 hours.
ND Microspheres Acrylic processing is available with a variety of colors for easy part inspection and in different strengths to fit the desired application.
ND Microspheres Acrylic procesed parts meet or exceed all torque requirements of IFI 125, IFI 525, as well as automotive adhesive coated fastener performance specifications.
