Loctite Thread lock

The Loctite 250ml blue thread lock is designed for locking and sealing of threaded fasteners, which requires normal disassembly with standard hand tools. This product cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration. The thixotropic nature of Loctite 243 reduces the migration of liquid products after application to the substrate. It provides robust curing performance. It not only works on active metals (e. G. brass, copper) but also on passive substrates such as stainless steel and plated surfaces. This product offers high-temperature performance and oil tolerance. It tolerates minor surface contaminations from various oils, such as cutting, lubrication, anti-corrosion and protection fluids.
