Vibra-Tite® VC-3® Threadmate is one of the most versatile threadlockers available on the market. An alternative to traditional liquid lockers which cure to form a hard bond, VC-3 is a blend of resins designed to remain flexible and absorb vibration. This unique difference makes VC-3 coated fasteners truly adjustable, removable, and reusable.
Locks Absorb Flexibel Reuseable
Vibra-Tite® VC-3® Threadmate is one of the most versatile threadlockers available on the market. An alternative to traditional liquid lockers which cure to form a hard bond, VC-3 is a blend of resins designed to remain flexible and absorb vibration. This unique difference makes VC-3 coated fasteners truly adjustable, removable, and reusable. It is a thread locking comparable to DIN 267 part 28.
Threaded parts coated with Vibra-Tite VC-3 can be easily adjust, remove and reuse up to 5 times with constant torque and standard tools.
Resistant to most solvents (acts as a partial corrosion barrier)
Unlike anaerobic threadlockers, VC-3 can be air dried and then installed into a mating part under both fresh and salt water.
Adheres to both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, most platings, wood, and plastic (see table) screws.
Shake well before each use. Apply VC-3 a length of 1 to 1 ½ times the fastener diameter, filling threads 30-50%. Although material will be dry to touch within minutes, allow VC-3 to dry for at least 30 minutes (the longer the better), depending on part size. Fasteners are then ready for assembly or to be stored for later use.

Note that all VC products are applied and dried on a fastener first. So if your fastener is metal, it can likely be installed into any substrate as the solvent has already evaporated.
