Press Fit Retaining Compound
The Park Tool RC-1 Press Fit Retaining Compound material fills gaps and helps retain non-threaded parts like press-fit bottom bracket parts, sealed bearings, and many more. This compound competes with Loctite® 680™.
Park Tool AP-1 Adhesive Primer must be used to prep all components, fasteners, and carbon fiber surfaces before application of Park Tool threadlockers or retaining compound. Failure to do so could result in permanently bonded parts.
Please note some painted surfaces can be sensitive to threadlockers, retaining compounds, and primers. Test first on an inconspicuous area to see if it causes a stain or discoloration. Clean off any excess from painted surfaces immediately.
