If you can’t be sure the surfaces of your cylindrical fitting parts will always be clean, try LOCTITE® 603 high-strength retaining compound. It is capable of cutting through light coatings of oil on parts, such as cutting fluids and rust preventative oils. Its low viscosity makes it ideal for augmenting press / interference fits, or slip-fitted assemblies with small clearances. The high-strength adhesive reliably prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration on cylindrical parts, such as roller bearings or oil impregnated bushings into housings.
