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 Â¾ 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
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
