LOCTITE - threadlocking products
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.
LOCTITE Threadlockers are superior to traditional mechanical locking methods
Mechanical devices, e.g. split pins and tab washers; Only used to prevent the loss of nuts and bolts from loosening.
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: prevent self-loosening, but are expensive and need larger flange-bearing surfaces which may lead to surface damage.
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.
