Activators & Primers

ACTIVATORS, PRIMERS &
ANCILLARY PRODUCTS

We launched our line of activators, primers and ancillary products to be able to meet very specific needs, yet still be used in a wide range of industrial needs. Krylex® activators, for instant adhesives and anaerobic products, are designed to accelerate the curing speed; best uses include cold or dry environments or passive substrates. Krylex® primers are for use on “low surface energy” plastics to enable Krylex® cyanoacrylate adhesive to bond to the surface by increasing the surface energy. Enables the bonding of difficult to bond plastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene and silicone rubber.

CYANOACRYLATES

The Krylex® line includes instant adhesives (“super glues”) that create strong bonds with rubber, metal, ceramic, wood, and plastic. Krylex® grades also include Rubber‐Toughened, High‐Temperature Resistant, and Low‐Odor/Low‐Bloom varieties. Hard to bond plastics, such as PTFE, polythene, and polypropylene, can be bonded using the Krylex® range of primers and activators.

RETAINING COMPOUNDS

Krylex® Performance Retaining Compounds are designed to bond non-threaded, cylindrical, assemblies by filling the voids between close fitting parts. These retaining compounds harden to create a solid, one-piece assembly. Retaining Compounds can be used to lock keyways, secure splines, augment press fits, and strengthen interference fits. They are used to prevent wear on new components, or to restore the fit to worn or out-of-tolerance parts. Retaining Compounds seal joints against leakage and prevent fretting and corrosion. Formulated in a variety of viscosities, strength characteristics, gap-filling abilities, and temperature ranges, Krylex® Retaining Compounds can solve even the most difficult of retaining applications.

THREAD SEALEANTS

Krylex® Thread Sealants secure and seal metal pipes and fittings. By filling the space between the tapered threads of metal parts, thread sealants prevent leakage caused by vibration loosening, tape shredding, solvent evaporation, damaged threads, and temperature cycling. Designed for both high and low pressure applications, thread sealants seal instantly for on-line low pressure testing. When fully cured, they seal to the burst strength of most piping systems. The high lubrication properties of Krylex® thread sealants facilitates assembly and prevents galling of the threads. For system repairs, parts may be disassembled with normal hand tools.

THREAD SEALEANTS

Krylex® Liquid Threadlockers are superior to conventional lock washers, nylon inserts and other mechanical locking devices because they secure the entire fastener assembly against loosening from shock and vibration. This ensures that clamping forces are maintained. Threadlockers also seal the threads against leakage to prevent rust and corrosion. Available in a variety of strengths and service temperature ranges, liquid threadlockers remain the most reliable way to lock and seal threaded fasteners of all shapes and sizes, either before or after assembly.
