It is recommended to use LOCTITE® SF 7063/7064 to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying adhesive.
2. Preparation - Activation
If cure speed is too slow due to passive metals (stainless steel, aluminium and plated metals) or low temperature (below 5°C), use activator LOCTITE® SF 7240 or LOCTITE® SF 7649 (see cure speed vs activator graph in the TDS).
Apply liquid threadlocker to the engagement area. For manual dispensing the use of a peristaltic handgun is recommended to ensure a consistent application volume.
4. Application - Through Hole
Insert bolt and apply threadlocker to the exposed thread. Assemble nut and tighten to the correct/specified torque.
5. Application - Blind Hole
Apply into lower third of blind hole.
Assemble and tighten. If several bolts are being assembled, torque them down to the correct value within the fixture.
7. Disassembly - Hand Tools
Disassemble with standard hand tools.
8. Disassembly - Heat
If disassembly is not possible using normal hand tools, apply localized heat to approximately 250°C. Disassemble while hot.
9. Disassembly After Heating - Hand Tools
Disassemble while hot with standard hand tools.
For the disassembly of corroded or seized parts, use LOCTITE® LB 8040 Freeze and Release.
