Loctite Threadlocker Sticks

Loctite Threadlocker Sticks

Loctite is a recognized leader in products for MRO – and their threadlockers are especially well-regarded. Now, Loctite has gone a step further and is offering their most popular threadlockers packaged a whole new way: threadlocker sticks. They can be easily carried in a pocket or stored in a toolbox.

The material hasn’t changed. But the packaging is entirely new. Loctite now has the first chemical threadlocking and thread sealing products offered in a semi-solid form.

The Products

  • Loctite® 248 medium strength blue threadlocker
  • Loctite® 268 high strength red threadlocker
  • Loctite® 561 PST® pipe sealant with PTFE
  • Loctite® C5-A® copper based anti-seize
  • Loctite® Silver Grade anti-seize

Loctite Sticks Have Many Advantages

  • Neat
  • Clean
  • Easy to carry and apply
  • No leaks or drips
  • Easy-to-identify with color-coded caps

Loctite sticks offer greater flexibility in overhead or hard to reach applications. They are especially easy to use on components that cannot be moved, and for pretreating bolts

Easy To Use

  • Just remove the cap, wipe it on, replace the cap, and toss it in your pocket or toolbox.
  • Rub product perpendicular to threads.
  • Completely fill the root of the threads at the area of engagement.
  • The required amount of stick product, as with liquids, is dependent on the fastener size.
  • Recap and store the stick.
  • Assemble fastener or fitting as required and torque to specified level.

Only Use A Little

  • Advance only the amount required per application, typically less than 1/8″. Note: This is likely far less than you may originally think!
  • Lab data indicates that 3-4 swipes spaced around a 3/8 fitting is adequate for sealing and strength performance. Larger fittings will require more product.
  • Rule of thumb – advance stick only as deep as the threads you are applying to.
