How to

Step by Step Guide

1. Preparation

Cleaning - It is recommended to use LOCTITE® SF 7070™ Cleaner & Degreaser to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying adhesive. Activation - If cure speed is too slow due to passive metals (stainless steel, aluminum and plated metals) or low temperatures (below 5°C), use LOCTITE® SF 7649 activator. Allow to dry.

2. Application

Starting one to two threads from leading edge of pipe, apply a 360° bead to cover three thread roots. For bigger threads, apply both on male and female threads. (Recommended dispensing equipment: LOCTITE® Pro Pump, LOCTITE® 50 ml or 250 ml Hand Pump, or Peristaltic handgun 97001.)

3. Assembly

Assemble fittings using wrench tightening in accordance with manufacturers' recommendations.

4. Disassembly

Disassemble with standard hand tools. If not possible, apply localized heat to approximately 260°C/500°F and disassemble while hot.
