Permatex Threadlocker adhesives are widely accepted in a broad range of applications. From delicate fuel injection components to heavy-duty transmission and engine assemblies. Specified by automotive OEM’s and approved for use on factory assembly lines, Threadlockers apply as liquids or gels, filling the space between threaded metal parts, curing to form a tough, adhesive bond and seal. Permatex Threadlockers are superior to conventional lock washers, nylon inserts and other mechanical devices because they secure the entire fastener assembly against loosening from shock and vibration, so fastener clamping forces are maintained. Threadlockers also seal the threads against leakage, preventing rust and corrosion. Available in a variety of strengths and temperature ratings, Permatex Threadlockers are simply the most reliable way to lock and seal threaded fasteners of all shapes and sizes, either before or after assembly.
