Downtime costs money, which is why it’s essential that manufacturers take steps to reduce equipment failure, as well as manufacturing-parts failure. Loctite Threadlockers can help.
Prevents loosening from shock and vibration
Air gaps between fasteners and nuts cause equipment to vibrate, leading to the loosening of fasteners and, as a result, the premature failure of parts and equipment. Loctite Threadlockers, a liquid resin, fill the air space between the nut and the bolt and solidify to form a tough thermoset plastic. This allows full contact between the nut and bolt to prevent loosening from vibration.
Seals and protects against rust and corrosion
Fasteners can also quickly rust and corrode when water and air leak between nut and bolt gaps. Loctite Threadlockers help prevent rust and corrosion by sealing these gaps to eliminate a potential leak path.
Loctite Threadlockers also offer benefits during assembly and disassembly. For example, they provide lubricity to achieve controlled strength during assembly and are designed to be applied at the moment parts are assembled. In addition, they help prevent galling and seizing for reliable disassembly. Another bonus: One bottle can be used on multiple sizes of fasteners. This reduces inventory requirements and, as a result, saves money.
Loctite Threadlockers are available in low-, medium- and high-strength options through Henkel, a leading provider of adhesives, sealants and functional coating products. For more information, contact Henkel.
