    ASTM D5657

    Significance and Use

    5.1 Thread-locking adhesives are often used on threaded fasteners in sealing applications. This test method is used to determine an adhesive's ability to provide sealing capabilities under specified conditions.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the ability of adhesives used for locking and sealing threaded fasteners, to make leak-tight assemblies.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 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.
