LOCTITE® 222 is designed for the locking and sealing of threaded fasteners which require easy disassembly with standard hand tools. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration. Particularly suitable for applications such as adjustment of set screws, small diameter or long engagement length fasteners, where easy disassembly is required without shearing the screw. The thixotropic nature of LOCTITE® 222 reduces the migration of liquid product after application to the substrate.
Loctite ® 222™ Threadlocker is ideal for fastener diameters of 1/4″(6mm) and smaller. Controlled lubricity for accurate clamp loads. Parts can be separated using hand tools. Apply to threaded parts before assembly. Controlled lubricity for accurate clamp loads. Parts can be disassembled with hand tools. Approved for use in or around food processing areas.
