Types of Threadlockers

by Andy on February 18, 2013

Liquid Threadlocker

This is your normal threadlocker, used for general purposes. There are a wide variety of liquid threadlockers in low, medium, and high strengths. This allows for a great versatility, whether you need to just prevent movement from vibration or a permanently affix a bolt to a hole.

Gel Threadlocker

Gels are used when you need to close a larger gap between the screw and the threads. This is especially helpful for larger screws, as it provides an even stronger bond than normal liquid threadlockers. It also helps prevent the dripping and mess associated with liquid threadlockers.

Stick Threadlocker

If you have a bolt that cannot have any liquid dripping off of it then a stick threadlocker may be best suited for your need. The stick threadlocker has the consistency of a wax-like semi-solid that is packaged like a traditional glue stick.

Tape Threadlocker

Tape threadlockers are another non-liquid alternative, and they provide a great bond in an easy to use substance. One extra benefit to tape threadlockers is that they only cure when confined between close fitting metal surfaces in the absence of air. This means you can apply them to your screws days before they are assembled, to streamline your assembly process.
