HENKEL: Gel Threadlocker

April 24, 2008

A new medium-strength gel threadlocker from Henkel Corp., Loctite® 2033TM, is packaged in a unique bottle designed to deliver both pinpoint and wide coverage dispensing options.  The easy-to-use, ergonomic 35-ml bottle features two dispense heads - pinpoint and flattop - that ensure application accuracy and fingertip control.

Loctite 2033 Gel Threadlocker is formulated for use on assemblies with coarse, wide, deep or large threads sized one-quarter to one inch.  This product cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening from shock and vibration.  Designed to resist most chemicals, liquids and gases, Loctite 2033 Gel Threadlocker resists temperatures to 150°C and can be disassembled using standard hand tools.

The gel consistency of Loctite 2033 makes it ideal for use in overhead, pre-applied and other challenging applications.
