DROPBOND® Anaerobic Threadlockers are single-component liquid adhesives that secure nuts, bolts, and threaded fasteners. They are designed to eliminate air gaps that, combined with vibration and shock, that allow for loosening in threads. This is achieved by forming a strong bond between the threads that holds everything tightly in place with a controlled strength thread lock.
The anaerobic threadlocker adhesive cures in the absence of air to form a strong, thermoset plastic that locks threads and joints in place and prevents loosening, ensuring assemblies retain clamp load over time.
Our Threadlocking adhesives can effectively reduce the impact of costly failures, repairs, maintenance, and downtime and can also lower the effect of corrosion in threaded components and help to prevent leaks in machine assemblies.
Applicable across both maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) and original equipment manufacturing (OEM), DROP BOND Threadlockers improve reliability, eliminate failure, and boost productivity in manufacturing operations.
- Reduce downtime
- Provide strong, long-lasting adhesive performance
- Reduce the risk of loosening and leaks
- Lower maintenance and manufacturing costs
- Broad temperature resistance of -50°C to 150°C
Our products are available in many different grades to cater to a broad array of applications. These different grades or thread lock types are color-coded to help you distinguish one threadlocker type from another.
Choosing between a DROPBOND® red, blue, green or purple threadlocker will depend on the specific needs of your project and the threadlocker strength you require. To find the right threadlocker for your task, key considerations should include:
- Maintenance and disassembly needs
- Temperature requirements of application
- Application strength and vibration levels
- Type of assembly
- Thread size
- Application area and location
DROPBOND® Red Threadlocker is the highest strength of threadlocker adhesive. This product cures fully in 24 hours. The red high strength threadlocker products are so powerful they may require heat to be disassembled.
DROPBOND® Blue Threadlocker is a medium strength threadlocker adhesive. This product cures fully in 24 hours and can be disassembled with hand tools. Blue threadlockers are removable with standard hand tools on 6mm to 20mm fasteners, have fast fixture times.
DROPBOND® Green Threadlocker is recommended for locking preassembled fasteners, e.g. electrical connectors and set screws, and prevents against loosening, rust, and corrosion. This wicking grade threadlocker is categorized as a medium-to-high-strength adhesive. DROPBOND® Green Wicking Threadlocker cures in 24 hours and can be removed with hand tools and, in rare instances, may require heat to assist when threads have excessive engagement lengths.
DROPBOND® Purple Threadlocker is a low strength threadlocker and cures in 24 hours. It can be used on metals such as aluminum and brass and offers a lot of flexibility to the user with many uses, from carburettor screws to eyeglasses to small screws on laptops.
Due to the threadlocker being low strength, it can be removed with the same tool used to put the project together. It is available in an easy-to-use liquid application, which makes the product especially efficient with very small screw applications, less than ¼ inches in diameter.
