Screw Locking

The screw lock prevents unintentional loosening or loosening of a screw connection. A screw lock is an anaerobic adhesive that is used for threaded metal and plastic connections and cures at room temperature in the absence of air. The adhesive completely fills the gap in the thread and thus secures the connection.

 

Especially in vehicles such as cars, motorcycles, vintage cars, boats, bicycles, mountain bikes, racing bikes or e-bikes, etc. screws, nuts, bolts and axles are used to hold all possible components together. If these connections are to be durable, additional securing is usually required. Owners of a vehicle can often sing a song about it. Engine vibrations, but also road shocks can loosen some screws or nuts over time.

High strength

Low strength, the screw lock is particularly suitable for use with adjusting, countersunk and set screws as well as for small threads up to 6mm. Loosening the screw connection is relatively easy.

Medium strength, the screw lock is universally suitable for all types of metal. The adhesives behave tolerantly towards slight oily soiling and prevent the unintentional loosening of screw connections by vibration.

High strength, the screw lock is particularly temperature resistant and suitable for permanent fixing (e.g. of stud bolts on engine blocks) of all metals, including passive materials.

It also serves as a protection against unauthorized loosening and, if necessary, as theft protection.

Apply evenly to bolts or nuts. Hardening takes place under exclusion of air (anaerobic). The curing time must be differentiated between active and passive materials. Active materials are metals with a high iron or copper content (e.g. iron, steel, copper, brass, bronze). Active materials ensure rapid curing. In the case of passive materials such as high-alloy (stainless) steel, zinc, aluminium or plastics, the curing process is very slow or only carried out with the aid of an activator. You can buy an activator here.

Screw Locking - Step by Step Instructions

  1. Clean the surface of the screw connection, remove dirt, oil and grease residues.
  2. Shake the screw locking device to the desired strength and make it available.
  3. If activator is required, it can now be applied to the joint.
  4. Apply the screw lock to the thread, screw or nut.
  5. Tighten the screw connection with the appropriate tool.
