How to use
It is recommended to use LOCTITE SF 7070 to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying threadlocker.
If cure speed is too slow due to passive metals (stainless steel, aluminum and plated metals) or low temperature (below 5°C), use LOCTITE SF 7649 activator. Allow to dry.
Apply a few drops of liquid threadlocker to the thread engagement area. Assemble nut and tighten to proper torque.
Apply several drops of liquid threadlocker into lower third of blind hole, as well as a few drops onto male threads, and then install male threads. Tighten to proper torque.
Assemble and tighten to proper torque requirement. If several screws/small bolts are being assembled, torque them down to the correct value within the fixture time window.
Disassemble with standard hand tools.
Prevent vibration loosening, prevent leaks, protect threaded components from corrosion and increase the reliability of mechanical fasteners by using a LOCTITE® anaerobic threadlocking adhesive.
The standard continuous operating temperature range for LOCTITE® anaerobic adhesives is -65°F to +300°F (-55˚C to +150˚C).Depending on the specific application requirements, high-performance grades are also available offering increased temperature resistance. Please consult with the Henkel technical team for availability and grade selection.
Yes, Henkel's anaerobic adhesives become highly resistant thermoset polymers once cured, making them suitable for a vast number of applications. Consult our online product resources or contact our technical teams for further information.
Yes, these products are all anaerobic adhesives that will function in a similar way. Variations in the adhesive characteristics (viscosity, gap-fill, strength, etc.) will make them better suited to certain applications. Consult the product technical data sheets and/or Henkel representatives for further information.
All necessary H&S measures and PPE (personal protection equipment) requirements can be found on the product material safety data sheet, all of which are available via our website.
