LOCTITE® solutions for industrial maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) ensures your key machinery is reliable and working at optimal levels. This helps increase uptime and productivity within your plant.
Mechanical locking devices (such as split ring washers, nylon insert nuts, and serrated tooth washers were invented to solve the common problem of loosening that happens in most threaded assemblies). However, the reality is that they don’t “lock” the assemblies and can’t maintain clamp load. These devices often loosen under vibration, thermal expansion, bending, and/or improper torque.
Threadlockers, or threadlocking adhesives, are the solution to this problem. Applied between two mating threads, these liquid threadlocker adhesives secure nuts, bolts, and threaded fasteners in place. They cure to form a strong bond that prevents loosening, ensuring assemblies retain clamp load over time.
Threaded fasteners, such as bolts and nuts, have a huge role to play in many industries. Their impressive clamp load means they are the ideal fastener for use across a wide range of manufacturing and maintenance applications. However, these types of assemblies can fail over time as they work themselves loose, thanks to vibration, bending, or thermal expansion.
Choose from a range of different strengths and application types and discover LOCTITE® threadlockers that:
- Reduce downtime
- Provide strong, long-lasting adhesive performance
- Reduce the risk of loosening and leaks
- Lower maintenance and manufacturing costs
Leaks from pipes and fluid fittings can bring work processes to a standstill. LOCTITE® thread sealants are the preferred solution for many different applications across industries to secure pipes, hydraulic systems, and other connections from fluid leaks. LOCTITE® has long been a trusted brand for adhesive and sealant technology, helping our partners reduce downtime while cutting cost.
Reliable thread sealing is achieved as the anaerobic thread sealant cures when confined in the absence of air and contact with metal surfaces. This technology is ideal for preventing leaks due to vibration, changing pressures, or changing temperatures. Thread sealants are the ideal solution to preventing leaks in industrial maintenance and assembly applications due to their ease of application and quick cure times.
