Step by Step Guide
Preparation - Cleaning
It is recommended to use LOCTITE® SF 7070™ to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying adhesive.
Assemble nut and bolt. Dispense a low-viscosity wicking grade threadlocker, such as LOCTITE 290, at the nut and bolt juncture.
Disassembly - Hand Tools
Disassemble with standard hand tools.
Disassembly - Heat
If disassembly is not possible using normal hand tools, apply localized heat to approximately 500°F/260°C. Disassemble while hot with standard hand tools.
For the disassembly of corroded or seized parts use LOCTITE® LB 8040™ Freeze and Release.
