Stock# VTVC3-5-1


Price: $5.99

Vibra-Tite VC-3 Threadmate is one of the most versatile threadlockers available on the market. Unlike 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. Great for fasteners ranging from tiny set and eyeglass screws to huge construction bolts, Vibra-Tite VC-3 is ideal for use on assemblies of any size and configuration.

Color = Red (custom colors can be manufactured dependent on quantity.
Solvent = Methyl ethyl ketone
Cured form = Resilient plastic
Shelf life = Bottled: 5 Years from date of manufacture. Applied: Indefinite.
Chemical resistance = Offers resistance to most solvents (acts as a partial corrosion barrier)
Dries for use = 10-30 minutes, depending on part size.
Drying method for bulk production = Best achieved using considerable airflow in addition to temperature not exceeding 130˚F
Operational temperature range = -65˚F to 165˚F (-54˚C to 74˚C) For other temperature applications, please consult factory
Reusability = Using steady pressure and standard hand tools, parts coated with Vibra-Tite VC-3 can easily be adjusted, removed, and reused up to 5 times.
Minimizes Galling/Stripping = Since Vibra-Tite VC-3 remains a thick, resilient, taffy-like “viscous resin,” its cold flow properties actually minimize galling or stripping of soft threads during reuse.
Engagement torque = Moderate
Breakaway torque = No distinct break; slow, fluid release as material cold flows
Standard coating length = 1 to 1 1/2 times diameter
Lead thread requirement = None
Thread fill requirement = 30 – 50% of the thread root area
