This specification establishes the requirements for single-component anaerobic adhesives suitable for locking, sealing, and retaining threaded or cylindrical assemblies. It is intended to be a means of classifying the adhesives, and does not address engineering design purposes. The adhesives are cured to a solid state when confined between closely fitting active metal surfaces. Materials shall undergo test procedures and conform accordingly to the following requirements: ultraviolet fluorescence; color and workmanship; flash point; storage stability; toxicity; solvent resistance; hot strength; heat aging; cold strength; lubricity; fluid tightness; wicking; viscosity; speed of cure; prevailing torque strength (strength at standard conditions); and qualification of primers.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers single-component anaerobic adhesives suitable for locking, sealing, and retaining threaded or cylindrical assemblies. The adhesives are cured to a solid state when confined between closely fitting active metal surfaces.
1.2 This specification is intended to be a means of classifying anaerobic adhesives. It is not intended for engineering design purposes.
1.3 This specification is intended to replace Military Specifications MIL-S-22473, MIL-S-46163, and MIL-R-46082.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 7, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
