Corp. has reformulated and reintroduced Loctite 243 Threadlocker to
withstand temperatures up to 360F, cure consistently without primers and
tolerate contamination from thread lubrication, anti-corrosion and protection
fluids. Designed for locking and sealing fasteners that may need to be
disassembled during their service life, this anaerobic threadlocker now
provides enhanced performance on both active and passive metal surfaces
including steel, stainless steel and plated materials.
Medium viscosity Loctite 243 prevents loosening and
leakage from shock and vibration on fasteners from 1/4 to ¬ĺ inch in diameter. This thixotropic liquid threadlocker will not migrate
once applied to a fastener's surface. Loctite 243 fixtures in 5 minutes and
achieves full cure in 24 hours when confined in the absence of air between
close fitting metal surfaces.
Fasteners assembled using removable-strength Loctite 243
can be disassembled using standard hand tools. This threadlocker is registered
to NSF Category P1, and can be used in and around food processing applications.
Loctite 243 is available in 0.5 ml capsules, 10 ml tubes and 50 ml, 250 ml or 1
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
