ThreadLocking

Why use a Loctite® Threadlocker?

Loctite® threadlocking products prevent self-loosening and secure any threaded fastener against vibration and shock loads. They are easy-flowing liquids which completely fill the gaps between mating threads. When used to assemble threaded fasteners, Loctite® Threadlockers permanently secure threaded assemblies and eliminate fretting corrosion by creating a unitised assembly.

Loctite® Threadlockers are much superior to traditional mechanical locking methods:

• Mechanical devices, e.g. split pins, tab washers: Only used to prevent the loss of nuts and bolts

• Friction devices: add to absolute elasticity and/or increase friction; but will not ensure permanent threadlocking under dynamic loads

• Locking devices, like tooth flanged and ribbed flanged bolts, nuts and washers: They prevent self-loosening, but are expensive and need larger flange-bearing surfaces; and they may damage the surfaces.

Loctite® Threadlockers are single-component liquid and semi-solid adhesives. They cure at room temperature to a hard solid thermoset plastic when applied between steel, aluminium, brass and most other metal surfaces. They cure in the absence of air. The adhesive completely fills the gaps between mating threads to lock threads and joints.

Advantages of Loctite® Threadlockers as compared to traditional mechanical locking devices:

• Prevent unwanted movement, loosening, leaks, and corrosion

• Resist vibration

• Single-component – clean and easy to apply

• Can be used on all sizes of fasteners – reduces inventory costs

• Seal threads – allow through-hole tapping
