Vibra-Tite VC-3 Threadmate

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 proprietary blend of thermoplastic elastomer resins designed to remain flexible and absorb vibration. The combination of inert/non-reactive amorphous resins creates a tough, semi solid layer inside the threads of a mated joint. VC-3 damps the vibrational energy transferred between the threads of a mated fastener, preventing fastener loosening and loss of clamp load. These unique differences make VC-3 coated fasteners truly adjustable, removable, and reusable.

  • An acrylic polymer that damps and absorbs vibration
  • Will not harden like anaerobic threadlockers
  • Works with metal, wood, plastic (*see table) and more
  • Fasteners are easily adjusted, removed and reused
  • Works on fasteners of any shape or size, from tiny eyeglass screws to large construction bolts
  • Works with internal or external threads
  • Meets low out-gassing specifications (NASA SP-R-0022A, in accordance with ASTM E 595)

Typical Applications

  • From tiny eyeglass screws to huge construction bolts, Vibra-Tite VC-3 is ideal for use on fasteners of any size.
  • Mounting ski / snowboard bindings, plates and inserts.
  • RC models (Drones, Airplanes, Helicopters).
  • Bolts on motorcycles.





Direction for Use

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.
