Global adhesive manufacturers ThreeBond are delighted that their anaerobic 1300 series offers such a comprehensive spread of solutions for cleverly bonding the joints of all types of threads etc, preventing them from loosening or leaking. They are distinguished from ordinary adhesives and sealants by the fact that they remain liquid so long as they are in contact with air, and as they enter fine gaps in metal parts and become isolated from oxygen, they harden at normal temperature without shrinking.

Cyanoacrylates 'instant' adhesives are brilliant assembly products general purpose, quick setting, simple to apply. But that general formula can be significantly improved, as the introduction of 1770 series light curing 'instants' by market leaders ThreeBond has demonstrated. Light curing not only accelerates the final cure time to approximately 10 seconds ( can be up to 24 hours for full cure without light activation ) but also deals with issues such as bleaching/blooming and slow curing excess.
