Liquid Threadlocker : Few Drops, Peace of Mind

One of the common problems encountered in most factories after interviewing with the field technicians and engineers -- loosening of  bolts and nuts.
Because of the effect of vibration loosening,  many threaded assemblies  lost its function and cause unscheduled breakdown, subsequently.

A wonderful product, anaerobic adhesive  was invented by *Loctite Corporation fifty years ago, this liquid  threadlocker locks and seals threaded assemblies  in a very reliable condition.

I shall share with you the curing mechanism of this threadocker ( anaerobic adhesive ) in my later post.


 
A few drops of   LOCTITE Threadlocker  can prevent Screw & Nuts  from vibration loose


LOCTITE  243 ( 23962 )  -- or sometimes known as ' Loctite threadlocker blue ', is designed for the locking and sealing of  threaded fasteners which require normal disassembly with standard hand tools. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration.
Particularly suitable for applications on less active substrates such as stainless steel and plated surfaces, where disassembly with hand tools is required for servicing.


" Threadlocking compound penetrated into the gaps in between screw and nut. Due to its nature as anaerobic adhesive, it polymerized to form a thermoplastic ( shown in red colour ), and bond the two mating parts together "
