Enhanced Loctite 243 Threadlocker

Henkel 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 A.75 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 liter bottles.
