ND Microspheres® Acrylic

Overview

ND Microspheres Acrylic Series threadlocking products are microencapsulated, room-temperature-curing adhesives which can be pre-applied to male or female threaded fasteners of virtually all sizes, configurations, materials, and finishes.

How it Works

ND Microspheres Acrylic Series products contain a microencapsulated activator that is suspended in a quick-curing, resin. The force of thread engagement crushes the microscopic capsules, releasing the activator and allowing it to mix with the resin. The resulting chemical reaction rapidly bonds the surfaces, locking the parts together and sealing off leak paths. ND Microspheres Acrylic Series is water-based, which makes the product environmentally friendly.

Features

Chemical Resistant

ND Microspheres Acrylic Series resists and seals against most automotive fluids. Oil, water, antifreeze, and gasoline have virtually no effect on ND Microspheres Acrylic Series once the final cure has been achieved.

Versatile

ND Microspheres Acrylic Series is available in a variety of colors for easy part inspection and in different strengths to fit the desired application.

High Temp & Torque Sensitive

ND manufactures formulations of ND Microspheres Acrylic Series that are specifically intended for use in high temperature or torque/tension sensitive applications.

Fast Fixture Times

Under typical conditions fixture is achieved within 5 minutes with a full cure in 72 hours.

Minimal Clean-up

Clean-up is a simple process that requires only soap and water.

Surpasses IFI Standards

ND Microspheres Acrylic Series meets or exceeds all torque requirements of IFI 125, IFI 525, as well as automotive adhesive coated fastener performance specifications.

Benefits

  • Saves Time: Fasteners coated with ND Microspheres can be automatically fed through standard feeding devices – speeding up your process and improving productivity..
  • Saves Money: The bulk pre-application of ND Microspheres to fasteners is less expensive than hand applying bottled thread locking compounds at the point of assembly. It also eliminates the need for costly lock washers, cotter pins or castellated nuts.
  • Quality Control: Pre-Applied ND Microspheres fasteners are coated to specification, ensuring consistent performance, unlike the variation from hand applying bottled products.
  • Reliability: Under most operating conditions, ND Microspheres are unaffected by vibration or reversal of stress and greatly reduces the need to re-tighten fasteners.

Notes

  • The ND Microspheres Acrylic Series has an on part life of 4 years. ( When stored in a dry, cool environment.)
  • ND Microspheres Acrylics are normally applied one to three threads back from the end of a fastener to assure ease of starting.
  • It is recommended that ND Microspheres Acrylic Series products are not reused.
  • Water based acrylic products should be tested for compatibility on application specific organic zinc fasteners with lubricated top coatings.  ND Microspheres Epoxy Series could be used as an alternative for any incompatibility.
  • As with all our Pre-Applied products, ND Industries can apply ND Microspheres Acrylics to your fasteners at any one of our regional service centers, or we can supply you with completed pre-applied fasteners.
