Henkel has launched Loctite 7414 Torquemarque, a blue, fast-drying, high-viscose paste that can be used to detect whether a piece of equipment or a component has been tampered with.

Loctite 7414 Torquemarque has been developed for use on compression fittings, studs, nuts, parts and assemblies after they have been set to proper tension or position.

Colin Chapman, marketing manager at Henkel, said: ‘This is a simple and inexpensive method of warranty protection.

‘One stripe of the product is applied once all adjustments have been made.

‘There is no dripping and within 60 seconds the paste is dry to touch,’ he added.

Once it is fully cured, the product fractures if the components are moved, allowing service personnel to identify any changes or tampering with equipment.

Loctite 7414 adheres readily to metals, including aluminium, magnesium, titanium, stainless steel and copper, and is non-corrosive to these metals.

It has an operating temperature range of -35C to +145C.
