Loctite High-Strength Red Threadlocker Cures Through Oils And Secures Large Fasteners Exposed To High Temperatures


Rocky Hill, CT - Henkel Corporation has introduced Loctite 263 Threadlocker, a high-strength, single-component anaerobic threadlocker designed to permanently lock and seal threaded fasteners up to one-inch in diameter. For use in a wide range of heavy-duty industrial applications, this high-viscosity, primerless, red threadlocker cures on fasteners treated with thread lubricants and anti-corrosion/protection fluids without cleaning.

When confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces, Loctite 263 fixtures and cures rapidly. This anaerobic threadlocker performs equally well on both active and passive metal surfaces including stainless steel and plated material without the use of a primer.

Once fully cured and in service, Loctite 263 prevents fastener loosening and leakage caused by shock and vibration, and withstands temperatures up to 360ºF. This red, high- strength threadlocker offers excellent resistance to a variety of industrial fluids and solvents, ensuring a leak-free seal of the threaded assembly. Localized heat and hand tools are required to disassemble fasteners treated with Loctite 263.

Loctite 263 Threadlocker is available in 0.5 ml capsules, 10 ml tubes, and 50 ml, 250 ml or 1 liter bottles.
