Loctite (Henkel Australia) have launched the new Best Ever Loctite243 and Loctite263 Threadlockers. Both products are the result of a commitment to develop and deliver innovative products that industrial customers need in today’s competitive environment.
The product capabilities of Loctite 243 have been enhanced to offer improved high temperature performance and to cure through light oil contaminations, while maintaining a very reliable cure on passive metal surfaces.
Loctite 263 high strength threadlockers offer reliable cure on passive metals, increased oil tolerance and improved high-temperature performance in one high-strength formulation.
The performance improvements for the formulations have been realized, while maintaining the core properties of medium and high strength threadlockers. The current Loctite material specification for Loctite 243, including appearance, fluorescence, viscosity and compressive shear strength, will remain unchanged for the new Loctite 243. This means that industrial customers can continue using Loctite 243 for their existing medium strength applications with the existing equipment.
Charles Vint, Loctite marketing manager says, “We are committed to technology innovation to improve our product performance and help our industrial customers stand at forefront of their own industries. The launch of Best Ever Loctite medium and high strength threadlockers have brought industrial end-users oil tolerance, workability on all metals, and improved temperature resistance, all in one formulation through leveraging the advancement in industrial adhesive technologies.”
