Henkel Offers Loctite Threadlocker Sticks, a New Generation of Wax-like, Semi-solid Adhesives

Published on 2014-06-16. Author : SpecialChem

Düsseldorf / Germany -- Formulated as wax-like, semi-solid adhesives packaged in a self-feeding stick applicator, Loctite 248 and Loctite 268 Threadlocker Sticks provide robust cure even on oil-contaminated or inactive metals like stainless steel. Only Henkel offers these convenient stick threadlockers for use in different maintenance, repair and overhaul applications.

Users of the new anaerobic threadlocker sticks can rely on their performance even if parts are oil-contaminated. In many cases the use of an activator is no longer necessary because Loctite 248 and Loctite 268 show excellent performance on inactive metals like stainless steel. Formulated as wax-like, semi-solid adhesives packaged in a self-feeding stick applicator, these convenient and portable products will not leak or drip when carried in a pocket, stored in a toolbox or used in an overhead application. The sticks are designed and as easy to use as Henkel’s well-known Pritt Sticks for consumers.

Loctite 248 and 268 threadlocker sticks deliver the same proven performance as the well-known liquid Loctite threadlockers: they secure threaded assemblies, fill gaps between threads, and prevent loosening, leaks and corrosion.

Medium Strength Blue Threadlocker and High Strength Red Threadlocker Stick

When Loctite 248 Medium Strength Blue Threadlocker Stick is applied to a threaded fastener, it can be disassembled using hand tools. This anaerobic adhesive is typically used for machine tools, presses, pumps, compressors, mounting bolts and gear boxes that require maintenance or servicing.
