Anaerobic Adhesives Improve the Reliability of Threaded Fasteners

Threaded fasteners set and hold tolerances on assemblies ranging from light duty equipment to heavy machinery. Loosening is one of the major causes of industrial equipment failure, and results in millions of dollars of unscheduled downtime costs each year. This whitepaper shows you how anaerobic adhesives can improve the reliability of threaded fasteners.

Making the right choice – Metal Free Anti-Seize lubrication fulfils all requirements

With changing government regulations and legislation, choosing the right lubricant is an integral factor for maximizing machine performance and operability. Ideal for use on all metals, employing metal free anti-seize not only reduces wear and tear on machinery parts and equipment, but also reduces the risk for workers who are not consequently exposed to heavy metals.

This whitepaper details the benefits of using metal free anti-seize lubricants in a number of heavy industrial applications regarding machine operability as well as environmental and personnel health and safety.

Why Nozzle Anti-Spatter Sprays Could Be Doing More Harm Than Good

Weld spatter is a persistent bugbear of the welding process, with the potential to diminish the quality and durability of weld joints as well as damage to delicate torch heads and consumables, leading to hours in lost labour and revenue.

Conventional aerosol-based anti-spatter sprays are generally accepted as the most effective solution for overall spatter resistance, however even these have serious limitations that can result in further lost productivity.

This white paper examines the potential consequences of weld splatter, concerns with current popular treatments, and viable alternatives for spatter protection in small and large-scale industrial processes.
