MATERIALS: Henkel Corp. has introduced Loctite® 263™ Threadlocker, a high-strength, single-component anaerobic threadlocker designed to permanently lock and seal threaded fasteners up to one-inch in diameter. For use in a wide range of heavy-duty industrial applications, this high-viscosity, primerless, red threadlocker cures on fasteners treated with thread lubricants and anti-corrosion/protection fluids without cleaning.
When confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces, Loctite® 263™ fixtures and cures rapidly. This anaerobic threadlocker performs equally well on both active and passive metal surfaces including stainless steel and plated material without the use of a primer.
Once fully cured and in service, Loctite® 263™ prevents fastener loosening and leakage caused by shock and vibration, and withstands temperatures up to 360ºF. This red, high- strength threadlocker offers excellent resistance to a variety of industrial fluids and solvents, ensuring a leak-free seal of the threaded assembly. Localized heat and hand tools are required to disassemble fasteners treated with Loctite® 263™.
Loctite® 263™ Threadlocker is available in 0.5 ml capsules, 10 ml tubes, and 50 ml, 250 ml or 1 liter bottles.
