There are three basic joint types; co-axial, lap
and butt joints.
Anaerobic adhesives are usually most suitable for
co-axial type joints (where one part slots into
another) or for threaded parts. Whether or not the
joint needs to be dismantled will determine the
strength of adhesive to use.
It is vital to consider joint configuration in the early
stages of your product design to achieve maximum
performance. Joints that have originally been
designed to be welded may need to be redesigned
to obtain optimum performance with adhesives.
The engineer also needs to consider the loading
of these joints and where the forces occur.
