Loctite Threadlockers: The Better Way To Lock and Seal Threaded Fasteners

Prevent fastener loosening

Fastener loosening is one of the leading causes of catastrophic equipment failure creating warranty problems, reliability issues, and unscheduled shutdown of equipment.

Mechanical fasteners are one way to attempt to lock fasteners but they come loose.

Loctite® threadlockers cure to fill the gaps between the threads and eliminate all movement between the threads.

Loctite® Threadlocker is the BETTER WAY! Better because it makes the assembly shock and vibration proof.

Prevent corrosion and seized parts

Seized and corroded assemblies cause excessive frustration, cost time, and the disassembly process can often be dangerous and costly. Mechanical fasteners cannot prevent corrosion.

Loctite® Threadlocker is the BETTER WAY! The better way because it seals the threads against moisture, protecting against corrosion and galling.

With the use of the appropriate strength, you will be ensured an easy disassembly every time.

Lower Costs

It is impossible to predict the numerous threaded fastening applications and the numerous styles and sizes of mechanical fasteners required for each application. Loctite® Threadlocker is a BETTER WAY!

Better because it lowers the costs from purchasing and storing fasteners. In addition to eliminating inventory costs, Loctite® threadlocker offers a lower cost per application than mechanical fasteners. The ease of automation with Loctite threadlocker also reduces assembly costs as well as increases throughput.

Anaerobic Adhesives Guarantee the Reliability

Threaded fasteners set and hold tolerances on assemblies ranging from light duty equipment to heavy machinery. Loosening is one of the major causes of industrial equipment failure, and results in millions of dollars of unscheduled downtime costs each year.

Analyzing Thread Treatment Options

Proactively treating threaded pipes and fastener with thread treatment products is critical to efficient and cost effective manufacturing. A major cause of industrial equipment failure, threaded fastener loosening results in millions of dollars of unscheduled downtime costs each year. Similarly, more than a billion gallons of industrial fluids are wasted through leakage each year.

Keeping Threaded Fasteners in Their Place

According to a booklet published by the Industrial Fasteners Institute, called “The Heritage of Mechanical Fasteners,” man’s invention of nails, rivets, screws and other basic fasteners helped pave the road from the Stone Age to the Space Age. If that is true, then fastener loosing has provided quite a few of the speed bumps and pot holes on that road.

Ten points about liquid threadlockers

Bolts, studs, set screws, and other threaded fasteners are the “ties that bind” industrial equipment together. Considering that fastener loosening is a leading cause of catastrophic failure in machinery, maintaining proper clamping forces is an important element in fastener effectiveness.
