Torque performance

Threaded assemblies are a common feature in machinery construction. The reliability of these assemblies depends on torque performance, which can be affected by issues such as tension release or self-loosening. We conduct tests to evaluate the effectiveness of our threadlocking adhesives in preventing movement and ensuring assemblies remain secure.
