It's important to be mindful on using Loctite Threadlocker for the kind of work you are doing. Threadlocker can be use in different applications, reading this guide will help you understand its uses and give you insights on how it perform. Good Luck for first time users, hope this guide can help you!
How does a Loctite threadlocker work?
Loctite threadlockers are single-component adhesives that cure in the absence of air and in contact with active metal to form a tough thermoset plastic. They completely fill all voids between the interfacing threads, which makes the assembly a unitized component and ultimately prevents loosening.
Another property of Loctite threadlockers is thread sealing. This property is especially important when assembling through-bolts in an oil reservoir or cooling jacket in order to keep the fluids sealed in and corrosion out. Examples of this application are common, but not limited, to gearboxes and internal combustion engines.
How do I use a Loctite threadlocker?
For blind holes
For overhead applications
For pre-applied applications
IMPORTANT: To achieve optimum performance, all parts must be clean and free of contaminants (e.g., oil, grease).
250 ml and 50 ml push-pull nozzle
250 ml and 50 ml Loctite hand pumps
Loctite integrated semi automatic dispenser, dispense valve and stationary dispense valve
For maximum convenience and productivity, Loctite threadlockers can be dispensed through Loctite dispensing systems.
When should I use a Loctite primer?
Speed up cure
Significantly speed up the cure time of Loctite threadlockers when assembling metal parts that are cold, have large gaps or deep threads. Not required for primerless products.
Inactive metal assemblies*
When assembling metal parts with inactive surfaces, Loctite primers are recommended to ensure proper performance of Loctite threadlockers. Not required for primerless products.
Loctite threadlocker key selection factors
Low Strength: Ideal for fasteners <¼" (6 mm). Easy disassembly using hand tools.
Medium Strength: Designed to be removable with standard hand tools on ¼" to ¾" fasteners.
High Strength: Designed to deliver high strength on ¼" to ¾" (6 mm to 22 mm) fasteners. For
removal, it may require localized heat (>550°F/260°C), hand tools, and disassembly while hot.
Liquid Formulas: Everyday assembly; ideal for fine threads and blind holes
Semisolid Formulas: Pocket-friendly, ideal for overhead applications
Tape Formula: Pocket-friendly; controlled application; can be pre-applied several days before assembly
Pre-Applied: QuickTape threadlocker can be applied beforehand on bolts that are waiting to be assembled.
Pre-Assembly: Most Loctite liquid threadlockers are designed to be applied at the moment that parts will be assembled.
Post-Assembly: Wicking grade formula can be applied on parts that are already assembled.
Materials Being Assembled
All Loctite Threadlockers: Metal-to-metal applications.
Loctite 425 Assure: Plastic-to-plastic, plastic-to-metal applications.
