USE WITH ARMATURE MAKING:
Animation Toolkit and Henkle (manufactures of Loctite) have recently revisited this product and worked together to identify the best formula to screw threaded balls onto bars.
Loctite 2700 is designed for the permanent bonding of cylindrical and threaded fitting parts where maximum strength at room temperature is required. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration or repeated use.
Cure speed and strength
Loctite 2700 has been tested on the Animation Toolkit range of products. We can safely say that when using this product with our range of balls and threaded bar it will cure (with a touch tight strength) within 1 hr but will only achieve maximum strength (depending on temperature) between 12 – 24 hrs.
We recommend when building armatures, that you have all of your parts to be locked with Loctite 2700 ready to go, with all final adjustments made.
Clean all parts in acetone/white spirit or similar, removing any grease from areas to be locked.
Apply a small amount to both surfaces to be bonded
Immediately screw both bonding surfaces together
Wipe away any access Loctite 2700 with a cotton bud or similar
Leave at room temperature for up to 24 hrs to achieve maximum strength.
Mistakes can be made:
If you have made a mistake or want to recycle a part that has been bonded then all is not lost. Simply heat bonded surfaces up with a small hobby torch, leave to cool and separate parts.
