3M™ Scotch-Weld™ General Purpose Retaining Compound is a green, single component, low viscosity, thixotropic anaerobic retaining compound formulated for bonding cylindrical parts to give high strength bonds.

We designed 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ General Purpose Retaining Compound to augment the strength of slip fit assemblies and for use on loose-fitting or worn parts. The formula requires no mixing or additives and takes the guesswork out of use. It is designed for service temperature applications up to 300°F (149°C) and helps prevent corrosion of assembled parts. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ General Purpose Retaining Compound is suitable for medium strength retaining applications and is not recommended on most plastics as stress cracking may result. Our family of 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ General Purpose Retaining Compounds are special adhesives designed to effectively secure brushings, bearings, cylindrical parts, and gears onto housings or shafts. Our retaining compounds also help increase the reliability of the joint. These anaerobic adhesives cure within 24 hours to help make a strong, lasting, precision assembly. They help create uniform stress distribution and maximum load transmission capability.

Suggested Applications

  • Augment the strength of slip fit assemblies
  • To prevent loosening, corrosion, and leakage of assembled parts caused by shock and vibration
  • Designed to secure cylindrical metal assemblies such as bearings on shafts, bushings, sleeves, housings, and keyways
