Are the new LOCTITE stick threadlockers 248 & 268 the same as any of LOCTITE's liquid threadlockers?
The stick products are similar but not identical. Their chemistry and function is the same but there are some distinct differences. Stick products are not recommended for blind hole applications. Blind hole applications require applying product to both male and female threads and this would be very difficult to do with the stick formulations. The stick products yield strength values that vary some from their liquid counterparts. See the TDS's for specific data. Also, the stick products are not tested to any military standards like their liquid counterparts.
