A new website from Henkel Corporation is designed to educate end-users on the problems that threadlockers solve, available strengths and grades, how to apply and remove threadlockers, the correct strengths for specific applications, and technical information on specialty grades for specific industrial applications.
Designed to reduce costs and enhance performance, Loctite® threadlockers dramatically increase the reliability of threaded assemblies used in applications ranging from heavy industrial equipment to delicate electronics. When restricted from oxygen, these adhesives solidify in the threads of the fastener, locking the nut and bolt together and protecting against vibrational loosening and thermal expansion. Threadlockers also seal assemblies against corrosion and leakage.
By clicking on the featured product link — Loctite® Threadlockers: Reliable and Removable — visitors to the site can get detailed information on the four available threadlocker strengths: high strength red, medium strength removable blue, low strength purple for small threads, and preassembled wicking grade green. Information is also available on food grade, mil-spec, plastic bonding, and health/safety specialty formulations. At the Loctite® Threadlockers: Reliable and Removable link, visitors can also access an interactive selector guide and qualified users can request an engineering sample of medium and high strength Loctite® threadlockers.
Additional resources located on the site include case histories, literature, technical data sheets, material safety data sheets and white papers.
