Hyloloc 406 is a high strength, water based, pre-appied threadlocking adhesive.
Hyloloc 406 is applied to the thread of the fastener by a flow coating method and is then dried by hot air blowers or ovens to leave a dry to the touch pre-applied adhesive. The water based formulation means that no hazardous solvents need to be used by the applications company. When dried the fasteners can be stored or shipped ready for use. Hyloloc 406 on-part life is up to 4 years when stored in dry conditions.
When the pre-applied fastener is screwed in place the Hyloloc 406 reacts to form a resiliant polymeric adhesive which secures the fastener in place. The rapid reaction rate of the adhesive ensures a very high strength is achieved within 1 hour of assembly. Hyloloc 406 is approved for use in automotive applications by Ford.
Hyloloc 407 is a medium strength , water based, pre-applied threadlocking adhesive. Hyloloc 407 is applied in the same way as its sister product 406 and based on the same technology. It exhibits similar benefits to both the applicator and end user.
