Henkel Formulates Primerless, Oil Tolerant Loctite Threadlocker Sticks to Cure through Contaminants
Press release date: December 12, 2013
Rocky Hill, Conn. -- Henkel Corporation has upgraded two Loctite anaerobic threadlocker sticks to deliver advanced performance on oil-contaminated surfaces without requiring primers or accelerators. Formulated as wax-like, semi-solid adhesives packaged in a self-feeding stick applicator, Loctite 248™ and Loctite 268™ Threadlocker Sticks are designed to securely lock and seal threaded assemblies, fill gaps between threads and prevent corrosion. Delivering the same proven performance as liquid threadlockers, these convenient and portable products will not leak or drip when carried in a pocket, stored in a toolbox or used in an overhead application.
When Loctite 248™ Medium Strength Blue Threadlocker Stick is applied to a threaded fastener, it can be disassembled using hand tools. This anaerobic adhesive is typically used for machine tools, presses, pumps, compressors, mounting bolts and gear boxes that require maintenance or servicing.
Loctite 268™ High Strength Red Threadlocker Stick can be removed with localized heat and hand tools. Designed for more permanent, heavy duty applications, this adhesive is typically used on heavy equipment, suspension bolts, bearing cap bolts and studs, and motor, transmission or pump mounts.
