Keeping Bonds Tight with LOCTITE®


Anaerobic adhesives work by completely filling gaps between components. They are typically used to augment the seal or holding force of a mechanically joined assembly. LOCTITE® anaerobic adhesives include threadlockers, thread sealants, retaining compounds, and gasket sealants.

Anaerobic adhesives remain liquid until isolated from oxygen in the presence of metal ions. Though anaerobic applications differ widely, in most cases the adhesive provides high shear strength and temperature resistance. Anaerobic adhesives fixture in minutes at room temperature and fully cure within 24 hours.

Why Stick with LOCTITE® Threadlocker?

The answer is simple: Fastener detachment remains a leading cause of industrial equipment failure, resulting in millions of dollars of downtime each year. LOCTITE® Threadlocker prevents loosening between threaded fasteners by forming a tough seal to lock and fill all voids.

WHY LOCTITE® Anaerobic Adhesives & Threadlockers?

No nuts, bolts, or hand tools. It can fill gaps and augment the seal between metal components in almost any application. Result = better holding force, more protection from vibration, reduced manufacturing costs, and enhanced equipment reliability.
