5 reasons why LOCTITE 243 is a “must-have”
"Did you know: LOCTITE 243 will be suitable for the vast majority of standard threadlocking application. You are unlikely to need another grade very often."
Reason 1 - Strengthens threaded assemblies against vibration by adding approx. 25% to the torque needed to loosen a normally tightened bolt assembly.
Reason 2 - One product for locking various sized fasteners, versus an inventory of different sized mechanical locking devices you would otherwise need to keep (saves both money and space).
Reason 3 - It’s suitable for active and inactive substrates. Do note though that activator LOCTITE SF 7649 is needed on inactive surfaces.
Reason 4 - It’s tolerant to minor oil contamination, curing on as-received fasteners without cleaning, or on parts that aren’t easily accessible for thorough cleaning during maintenance.
Reason 5 - Assemblies locked by LOCTITE 243 can be easily disassembled when needed, using ordinary hand tools.
