What is 609 Loctite used for?

LOCTITE® 609 is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration. Typical applications include rotor to shafts in fractional and subfractional horsepower motors.

Is Loctite 609 permanent?

None of these retaining compounds are permanent but like I said, the bond can be strong enough that there is the potential for knocking out just the inner race (along with the ball bearings) upon removal, leaving the outer race still in the shell.

Can Loctite 609 be used on threads?

Re: Loctite #609 and Thread-Lockers Now it is recommended for the bonding of cylindrical parts and not threads; about the same Chemical/Solvent Resistance as #242 but performance is measured in Shear Strength instead of Breakaway Torque.

What is the strongest Loctite?

Loctite Threadlocker Red 271
For parts that need a more permanent hold, like structural bolts in a home, auto suspensions and frames, or any other heavy machinery, Loctite Threadlocker Red 271 is the answer. This industrial grade threadlocker packs a stronger punch than the blue and can only be removed by heating the parts to 500F.

Is Loctite permanent?

Which Loctite is the strongest?

LOCTITE® Red Threadlocker
LOCTITE® Red Threadlocker is the highest strength. This product cures fully in 24 hours and is available in both a liquid and as a semisolid anaerobic. The red products are so powerful that they require heat to be disassembled. A primerless grade red threadlocker is also available.

Will acetone remove Loctite?

Acetone works pretty good to remove loctite on surface. Acetone or ordinary lacquer thinner breaks down Loctite. However, it’s not a matter of applying a drop and it melting away.
