Permabond HM165 Anaerobic Retainer

Permabond HM165 is a high viscosity anaerobic retaining compound with maximum gap fill that cures when confined between metal parts to form a tough bond.

Permabond HM165 Anaerobic Retainer - Description

Permabond HM165 is a high viscosity anaerobic adhesive best suited for cylindrical parts and where high temperature resistance is required. The high viscosity and thixotropic effect of the material allows for larger tolerances.


  • Adhesion for cylindrical parts and where high temperature resistance is required
  • The thixotropic effect allows for larger tolerances
  • Ideal for bonding polypropylene and polyethylene
  • It can also be used to bond a wide variety of other materials such as metals and composites


  • Very high strength
  • Easy to apply
  • Improved fatigue life
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High temperature resistance

Surface Preparation

  • Though the anaerobic adhesives will tolerate a slight degree of surface contamination, best results are obtained on clean, dry and grease free surfaces. The use of a suitable solvent-based cleaner (such as acetone or isopropanol) is recommended.
  • In general, roughened surfaces (~25μm) give higher bond strengths than polished or ground surfaces.
  • To reduce the curing time, especially on inactive surfaces (such as zinc, aluminium and stainless steel), the use of Permabond A905 or ASC10 can be considered

Directions for Use

  1. Apply a circumferential bead; preferentially to the female component.
  2. Assemble with a twisting action.
  3. For larger components use thixotropic products to prevent run off.
  4. Take care to ensure adhesive does not enter ball races or other mechanisms
