Henkel Loctite® 603 Oil Tolerant Retaining Compound
Categories: Polymer; Adhesive; Thermoset

Material Notes:
Loctite Corporation, the pioneer of anaerobic adhesives, has applied this technology to create retaining compounds that increase the shear strength of cylindrical, non-threaded assemblies. Finding wide acceptance as a standard method for assembling press and slip-fitted parts, Loctite® Retaining Compounds fill the "inner space" between components and cure to form a strong precision assembly. Formulated in a selection of viscosities, gap filling ability, flexibility and strength characteristics, Loctite® Retaining Compounds can be applied with automatic process equipment or dispensed manually.

Loctite® 603 Oil Tolerant Retaining Compound
A retaining compound tolerant of oil and other contamination. Seals and secures cylindrical assemblies up to 0.005" radial clearance. Fixtures in 10 minutes. Prevents fretting and corrosion of metal assemblies.
Recommended Primer: 7471 (T).
Typical Use: For close fitting parts with light contamination
