Maybe you're thinking of a different type of adhesive, Fishie. What you've described is not
the way anaerobic adhesives -- like cyanoacrylates -- work at all.
These adhesives are applied almost universally in, for example, aircraft construction for preventing fasteners coming out of airframes during the vibrations caused by flight. Aircraft engineers, indeed the air transport industry as a whole, are paranoid about any corrosive chemicals. I know because I'm an industrial chemist and it's a pain in the butt flying any chemicals that have a pH slightly below 5.
Cyanoacrylates are also used in cars, trucks, ships, skyscrapers, electronic manufacturing, and a bit of web research reveals they are also used in corrosion prevention.
