New literature from Henkel Corp. showcases key features and benefits of 21 products in its Loctite threadlocker line. Designed to reduce costs and enhance performance, the threadlockers also are said to increase the reliability of threaded assemblies used in applications ranging from heavy industrial equipment to delicate electronics. When restricted from oxygen, these adhesives solidify in the threads of the fastener, locking the nut and bolt together and protecting against vibrational loosening and thermal expansion. Threadlockers also seal assemblies against corrosion and leakage.

A properties chart in the literature provides detailed information on threadlocker products with a variety of strengths and viscosities, including primerless and oil-tolerant formulas, temperature-resistant grades, low- and medium-strength products that disassemble using hand tools, and high-strength red formulations that can be disassembled with localized heat and hand tools.

The literature is available either in hard copy or as a download from loctitethreadlockers.com

Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
