Retainers

Retainers are used in the fabrication of press & slip fittings. These types of fittings are commonly seen in the manufacture of housings, splines and bearings. These adhesives will retain all cylindrical parts which will be subjected to both radial and axial forces during the parts service life.

We are pleased to stock the entire range of Scigrip Structural Adhesives, range of retainers. These retainers are very well established all over Europe and over the past twenty years, have seen extensive use within the OEM & MRO sectors.

Our products cover the range of products required by industry. They differentiate by viscosity and strength. All of them have excellent gap filling properties allowing tolerances to be relaxed thus reducing both machining time and subsequent costs.

Their ability of retainers to provide a 100% surface contact results in an exceptionally strong assembly. The advantages of using our products to retain can be summed up as lower manufacturing costs and increased reliability. Assembly stresses (which subsequently reduce fatigue life) caused by press fitting, can be eliminated. Stronger, more consistent assemblies with an excellent service life are the characteristics of using our products.

Unsure about which retainer is best suited for an application? We are constantly surprised to find customers using the wrong retainer. Let us put this right. Our highly experienced engineers & chemists can specify the correct retainer to suit the job. Our service extends to utilising our mechanical laboratory for performance testing.

R903 A high strength retaining compound for use with cylindrical parts. It has exceptionally high strength under cyclic loading and the product will retain its full strength under fatigue load stress. The product has resistance to lubricating oils and has excellent heat resistance. Typically used as a cylindrical parts locking product and for the structural fixing of bolts. The product is typically used in the manufacture of housings & splines. It is commonly used for locking bearings in place, thus preventing spin out. It is also suitable for bonding rotors to shafts in low H.P motors.
R930 A securing compound designed for dynamic performance at temperatures up to 230°C. It retains substantial strength even at these temperatures and will outperform most other Anaerobic adhesives while also providing the additional reassurance of WRAS approval. The product feature a substituted non acrylic acid adhesion promotion system and is non-corrosive reducing skin sensitivity issues in use but still exhibits excellent adhesion. It has also been formulated to allow longer assembly times on highly reactive surfaces, such as brass and copper, to avoid partial curing during assembly. The product is typically used in the manufacture of housings & splines. It is commonly used for locking bearings in place, thus preventing spin out.
R938 A Dynamic Strength Retaining Compound is designed to give high strength retention under cyclic loading The product also provides the advantage of low corrosion with the added benefit of a WRAS Approval  (WRC/NSF) BS6920 Cert No: 0411511 for potable water, both hot and cold. The product also conforms to MIL-R-406824, type II strength classification. Used as a cylindrical parts locking product that prevents movement and leakage from bonded components, the product is typically used in the manufacture of splined housings, bonding pins and bonding motor sleeves.
R940 A high dynamic strength, low viscosity retainer. Used as a cylindrical parts locking product and prevents movement and leakage from bonded components. The product is typically used in the manufacture of gearbox assemblies, and bonding rotor shafts in electric motor repair & assembly.
R941 A medium strength, medium viscosity bearing adhesive. The product offers a reduced strength retainer for flat surfaces found on bearings and housings. Ease of disassembly with conventional tools enables the removal and replacement of parts in most maintenance applications.
