Introducing the Next Generation in Threadlocking
Anaerobic adhesives have dramatically increased the reliability of threaded assemblies. When it comes to resisting vibration, preventing corrosion / leakage, improving quality, and reducing weight, size and overall cost of an assembly, mechanical locking devices just don’t hold up – but Loctite® threadlockers can stand up to every manufacturing challenge.
Henkel’s next generation of threadlockers provide:
- upgraded temperature resistance – up to 360ºF
- oil tolerant curing on as-received fasteners without cleaning
- primerless performance on both inactive and active metals
Loctite 243™ and Loctite 263™ are state-of-the-art anaerobic adhesives that prevent fastener loosening caused by shock, vibration and temperature-induced expansion and contraction. Loctite 243 is a medium-strength, blue threadlocker that can be disassembled using standard hand tools. Loctite 263 is a high strength, red threadlocker for applications where permanent assembly is required. Both of these anaerobic adhesive products provide a leakproof, corrosion-free seal of the threads.
