Retaining Compound (Retainer)

« Back to Glossary Index

Anaerobic retaining compounds are used to permanently secured non-threaded, metal, cylindrical parts onto shafts or into housings.  For example, bearings.  Anaerobic retaining compounds provide 100% surface to surface contact wherein mechanical joining techniques provide only 20% contact.  The resulting increase in surface area allows for greater load carrying capacity.
