More than 50 years ago, LOCTITE® introduced the world’s first anaerobic threadlocking adhesive. Despite the maturity of the technology, it has been continually developed to provide new benefits and the company now says that its latest generation threadlockers are the ‘best-ever’.
The dedicated YouTube channel for Henkel is now live and is regularly being updated with application videos, best practice, webinars and success stories all available at: www.youtube.com/henkelindustrialadhesives
As a leading innovator, Henkel offers a global range of LOCTITE® adhesives, TEROSON® body repair and protection technologies, and BONDERITE® surface treatment products to meet industry’s toughest bonding, sealing and coating needs.
By working in partnership with industry and providing solutions expertise, Henkel helps its customers to make great products; ensuring designs are safer, more reliable, more durable and easier to manufacture. The YouTube channel demonstrates these benefits and also the wide scope of Henkel products in the vehicle, repair and maintenance market.
By comparison with traditional tapes or hemp and paste combinations, Henkel’s LOCTITE® 55, takes half the time to create a secure seal on threaded pipes. And now, with the introduction of the new 160m dispenser, the method is even more cost effective. A single reel will seal up to 405 joints with a half-inch thread size.
Application is quick and easy and the product is suitable for locking and sealing both metal and plastic pipes and fittings. Simply wind the sealing cord onto the first pitches clockwise and cross over the threads; the pack advises the correct number of turns for the application. Cut the cord using the dispenser’s cutting device and press the loose end onto the thread. Finally screw the fittings with a pipe wrench.
LOCTITE® 55 needs no cure time and results in an immediate, full pressure seal. It also allows reliable re-adjustments and can be backed off by up to 45 degrees without leakage. This is a single component product suitable for all pipework – both water and gas – and carries WRAS, BAM, DVGW and NSF approvals.
