Question Loctite 5145 or 5140 Any Good?

This relates to a previous question of mine that appears dead.

If I want to "fully secure" inductors onto a vendor's board, would the Loctite 5145 or Loctite 5140 product work?

The 5145 model appears to be much stronger as it mentions "bonding." The 5140 model purports self-leveling so perhaps it is a bit more fluid.

Both are non-corrosive alkoxy silicone products.

5145: Loctite 5145 - Henkel

5140: Loctite® 5140? - Henkel

The inductors in the crossovers will see quite a bit of vibration and I have had two fail on me after 4-5 years of use. They separated from the board and really messed themselves up. And, the crossovers are hard to get. So, before installing the new crossovers that I have acquired, why not augment what the vendor did when affixing them, eh? Plus, other components that could perhaps become loose?

Thanks for any thoughts.

I would go for the 5140 as it is designed for potting. Better still use Araldite for a permanent fixing,
