How to

Step by Step Guide

1. Preparation - Cleaning

It is recommended to use LOCTITE® 7063 to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying adhesive.

2. Preparation - Activation

If cure speed is too slow due to passive metals (stainless steel, aluminium and plated metals) or low temperature (below 5°C), use activator LOCTITE® 7240 or LOCTITE® 7649 (see cure speed vs activator graph in the TDS).

3. Application

Apply liquid threadlocker to the engagement area. (Recommended dispensing equipment: IDH 608996 50ml Hand Pump or IDH 88631 Peristaltic handgun 97001)

4. Application - Through Hole

Assemble bolt first and then apply threadlocker. Apply nut and tighten to correct torque.

5. Application - Blind Hole

Apply into lower third of blind hole.

6. Application - Post-Assembly

Assemble nut and bolt, dispense product at the edge of nut and bolt.

7. Assembly

Assemble and tighten. If several bolts are being assembled, torque them down to the correct value within the fixture.

8. Disassembly - Hand Tools

Disassemble with standard hand tools.

9. Disassembly - Heat

If not possible, apply localised heat to approximately 250°C. Disassemble while hot.

10. Disassembly after heating - Hand Tools

Disassemble while hot with standard hand tools.

11. Hint

For corroded or seized parts use LOCTITE 8040 Freeze and Release.
