Anaerobic Threadlocker in Revolutionary Tape Form: Convenient, Portable, Neat and Clean
HENKEL INTRODUCES INNOVATIVE LOCTITE® THREADLOCKER TAPE
Rocky Hill, Conn... The inventor of anaerobic adhesive technology - Henkel Corporation - has introduced the newest innovation in anaerobic threadlockers: Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) Threadlocker Tape. Dry to the touch and packaged in a convenient 260-inch roll, this medium-strength tape threadlocker provides the same reliable performance of liquid threadlockers yet can be carried in a pocket or toolbox. This tape can also be pre-applied to fasteners for future assembly.
Neat, clean and mess-free, Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) is applied just like any other tape product. The user simply peels the low-tack tape from the spool and wraps it around the fastener's threads. The size of the fastener determines the number of wraps required for secure locking and sealing. For example, a 3/8-inch bolt requires two to three overlapping wraps, applied to the area where the nut and bolt will meet. For blind hole applications, Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) is applied to the entire length of the bolt.
Convenient and portable, Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) is a general-purpose threadlocker that is removable with hand tools. Similar to liquid and stick threadlockers, this tape product fixtures in just 30 minutes with full cure achieved in 24 hours. Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) offers a wide operating temperature range from -65°F to 300°F.
Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) is designed to complement liquid and stick threadlockers. This tape can be used on "as received" threaded fasteners; however, a clean surface is always preferred. Like its liquid and stick counterparts, Loctite® QuickTape(TM) 249(TM) offers a shelf life of two years.
