High-lubricity thread locker

  • 20-Jan-2010 10:33 EST

Henkel’s Loctite 2047 is designed to ensure maximum performance of fasteners greater than 7/8-in diameter. The dual-function thread locker works both as a lubricant that reduces friction and achieves proper clamp load during fastener assembly and as an adhesive/sealant that eliminates loosening, maintains clamp load, and prevents corrosion. It cures slowly, achieving fixture strength after 90 min and full cure after 24 h to allow the assembly of multiple fasteners. On fastener assemblies where torque greater than 500 ft·lb generates considerable heat, this slow-cure profile prevents premature thread locker cure, ensures reliable clamp load, prevents failure, and simplifies disassembly. The material lubricates during the torque process when used with pneumatic impact tools.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
