Rapidstick Pure 8242 Threadlocker is fast curing with medium strength and specifically formulated to give controlled friction and torque/tension ratio during assembly. It is designed for plated parts and vibrating or moving components, and is ideal for fasteners with diameters between 6mm to 20mm (1/4” to 3/4″).
8242 provides a chemically resistant lock and seal to threaded joints, nuts, screws, and studs, meeting 90% of all nut and bold thread locking applications, and performs best in thin bond gaps. It can also be used for the retaining of cylindrical parts.
