DAP’s newest adhesive line, Tank Bond, includes new four new heavy-duty adhesives – Tank Bond Liquid Grip, Tank Bond Thread Stopper, Tank Bond Gel Threadlockers and Tank Bond Heavy Duty Advanced Epoxy – specialized for tool repairs, outdoor maintenance, and screw fastening and holds.
When applied to any size or type of screw or bolt, the Tank Bond Thread Stopper creates a gel-like coating to hold the fastener in place and absorb shock and vibrations. The non-locking formula allows the fastener to be removed and replaced up to five times with manual tools. It may be used on metal, wood, or plastic, and will not damage or crack these materials.
Tank Bond Liquid Grip provides up to seven times more grip for installation or removal when applied to screw heads, according to the manufacturer, reducing the risk of wear on the screw and on drill bits and tools. The formula works on all fastener types and sizes, and can be wiped away with a paper towel when a job is complete.
The Tank Bond Heavy Duty Advanced Epoxy is designed to provide superior bond strength, impact resistance, and retain hold against heavy force or vibrations, according to the manufacturer. It may be applied to metal, plastic, tile, ceramic, glass, stone, and woods, and cures in 30 minutes on most substrates with zero surface preparation required.
Gel Threadlockers – available in Removable or Permanent formulations – is designed to secure screws that may come loose over time due to frequent use or vibrations. The gel-like formula will not drip or run in vertical applications. It is designed to fix within ten minutes, and fully cure within 24 hours.
“Our heavy-duty line of Tank Bond adhesives are designed to make durable and reliable repairs on all types of equipment big or small,” says Kate Piche, product director at DAP. “Whether it’s preventing stripped screws and bonding fasteners to holding screws and bolts in place and bonding metal, this ‘tough-as-a-tank’ military-grade adhesive technology provides tactical solutions for even the most demanding jobs.” dap.com
