An ultra strong, high impact, composite material that is at the heart of our revolutionary new geartrain. KARBONITE composite gear train has eliminated lash and slop forever. They are less likely to strip under the shock and loads that would usually break standard gears. Found in all the "HD" (Heavy-Duty) and "HB" (Heavy-Duty Ball Bearing) servos. "Karbonite" gears are four times stronger than our standard nylon gears and offer virtually ZERO wear; even after 250,000 cycles when tested! The result, you get better control with KARBONITE gear technology.
Can I use loctite with my Karbonite gears?
A. It has come to the attention of the Hitec Product Service Department that some customers owning Hitec's KARBONITE gear servos are using thread locking compounds on the servo horn screws. Thread locking compounds such as the popular Locktite™ brand, are for use with METAL to METAL fasteners.
USING A THREAD LOCKING COMPOUND ON KARBONITE GEAR SERVOS WILL CAUSE THE PLASTIC TO FAIL.
Thread locking compound instructions typically warn against their use on plastics, as most plastic material will become brittle and shatter.
