Loctite anaerobic threadlockers from Henkel are claimed to offer an excellent method of keeping fasteners firmly in place. The self-loosening of threaded fasteners is a leading cause of catastrophic failure in industrial machinery so maintaining appropriate clamping forces is an important element in their effectiveness.  

For applications where a liquid product may be too fluid to stay on the part or difficult to apply, Loctite 248 and 268 sticks are suitable. Furthermore, the continuous development of their formulation has allowed these wax-like, semi-solids to offer even more performance benefits.

Loctite 248 is a medium-strength, single-component product for threads up to M50, while Loctite 268 is its high-strength counterpart. The colours blue and red differentiate the respective products visually.

Both Loctite 248 and 268 cure in the absence of air when confined between close-fitting metal surfaces. These products are suitable for use on a variety of metal surfaces, but are much more effective on passive substrates such as stainless steel.

The health and safety credentials of these products has also been improved, as has their tolerance of oil, making them less sensitive to improperly cleaned parts.
