Vibra-Tite VC-3 is a different kind of thread locker/sealer. Most thread lockers are good for one use. As soon as the screw is turned, the thread locker is broken and must be reapplied. Screws assembled with VC-3 can be disassembled and reassembled up to five times without reapplying. This means you can adjust pivot screws without worrying about the screw coming loose later.

VC-3 is a blend of acrylic resins. Apply VC-3 to threads and allow to dry for 30 minutes. After the locker/sealer dries the fastener is ready to use.

We recommend thinning VC-3 50/50 with methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) when using on small screws.

West Systems is a manufacturer of high quality adhesives. They are best known for their marine epoxies. In June 2007 they introduced G/flex.

G/flex is a tough two part epoxy that is specifically designed to bond metals, plastics, fiberglass and difficult to bond woods. The mix ratio is 1:1. This special epoxy withstands expansion, contraction, shock and vibration.

The pot life is 45 minutes and the working time is 75 minutes at 70°F. The initial cure time is 3-4 hours. The workable cure time is 7-10 hours and a full cure in 24 hours. We recommend waiting 24 hours before working with the materials being bonded.
