Consistent with its commitment to continuous product improvement, Henkel has just confirmed that one its most popular thread sealants, LOCTITE® 577, can now be applied to even more applications thanks to its reformulation.
As well as being more tolerant of oil, this medium strength, anaerobic sealant for all coarse threads also has greater temperature resistance and improved curing on passive metals such as stainless steel.
The latest generation of LOCTITE® 577 is designed to be used in common production and maintenance conditions and provide a consistent cure, even on oil contaminated surfaces. The new formulation also provides improved curing on passive metals with an activator. This simplifies the application process and supports the use of corrosion resistant pipes and fittings.
Higher service temperature is another benefit of the new LOCTITE® 577. Its range is now -55°C to +180°C, 30°C higher than its forerunner. This product remains well suited to overhead applications, as its viscosity prevents dripping. As before, this popular sealant meets P1 NSF, DVGW and WRAS approvals.
