Thread Sealing and Threadlocking
Thread sealants prevent leakage of gases and liquids from pipe joints. All such joints are considered to be dynamic due to vibration, changing pressures or changing temperatures. Loctite anaerobic sealants cure to insoluble tough plastic thread fillers which prevent leakage regardless of the torque applied.
Loctite® Thread Sealants. They fill gaps between the threads 100% and cure to a solid, thermoset plastic seal. They keep moisture out and give corrosion protection and prevent galling. They are not solvent-based and will not break down to cause blockages

Threadlockers are single component anaerobic which completely fill the microscopic gaps between interfacing threads. They polymerize to a tough solid when they come into contact with metal in the absence of air.
Loctite® Threadlockers. They seal the gaps between the threads, preventing moisture and protecting against corrosion and galling. They help you avoid the damage of interference fits. Loctite® Threadlockers also come in different strengths, including formula for parts that need easy disassembly; They not only eliminate inventory costs—they offer lower cost-per-application than mechanical fasteners. What’s more, with easy automated application, you reduce assembly costs and increase throughput.
