An interference joint assembly very often does not provide optimum result in terms of joint strength. This is because actual surface to surface contact in machinedparts is less than 30% thus reducing frictional joint strength. By introducing retaining compound between the interference joint, 100% contact is formed and strength is increased significantly.

After the application of retaining compound assembly must be done while rotating the male component and ensuring100% surface wetting/spread has happened.

Yes.A Loxeal retaining compound can be heat cured either to speed up the curing process or to increase the cross linking and strength.

Retaining compounds when used on inactive surfaces such as Stainless Steel,anodized aluminium, coated metals etc. tend to cure slowly. If faster cure is desired, use LoxealActivator-11.However prior testing is recommended because Activator-11 can reduce the final joint strength.
