Seal your Assembly with a Thread-Locker Solution from MRO
Our new line of Anaerobic Threadlockers are designed for locking and sealing fastener assemblies to prevent unintentional loosening of parts. Available in six (6) different strength formulas including medium strength blue, high strength red, high strength green penetrating, low strength viscosity red, low strength purple, high strength high temperature red, and oil resistant blue. Some threadlockers may be disassembled easily with hand tools and others form a more permanent and difficult to remove seal. We offer 10ml and 50ml bottles for your convenience.

Bob: Welcome back to Albany County Fasteners - Fasteners 101. I'm Bob and today we're going to talk about threadlocker solutions.
These thread-locking solutions are MRO brand and they're equivalent to Loctite, Vibra-tite, etc. Thread locker is a sealing product available in removable and permanent. We're going to demonstrate these products to you.
So, this is Low Strength Solution 15. This is removable. Made for small screw diameters up to 1/4". May be dismantled with Hand tools. You can use a ratchet or pliers to remove the nut or the screw.
So, the next one I have is Solution 17. This is a medium strength, blue color. Available in regular and oil resistant. It's removable. May be disassembled with hand tools on up to three-quarters of an inch diameter bolt. Oil resistant. It’s thicker and less runny.
Our solution 10 is almost equivalent to a solution 17. The only difference between the two is that solution 17 is oil resistant whereas the solution 10 is a standard thread locker with medium strength. It has the same properties basically of the blue available in regular. So, this would be the regular and this would be the oil. Removable. And the same thing, it can be used with up to three-quarters of an inch in diameter bolts.
The last one here is solution 16. This is a high-strength, high-temperature, threadlocker. This you're not going to remove with regular tools. This is permanent. Once you apply it, it would stand up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be used for up to one-and-a-half-inch diameter bolts. Disassembly is very difficult and impossible in most situations.
I'm going to take this solution 10, which is the medium strength blue. As you can see, this is brand-new. Comes with a sealed top on it. It has different levels to cut the tip off, so depending on how much material you want to come out. I'm just going to use the first tier and then I'm going to apply some of this on here.
This is the solution 10. That's enough on there, I think I put a little too much maybe this time. I'm just going to screw this on and I'm just going to leave it there and let it set up. I'm also going to move this to the side, put the cap back on, and then I'm going to take the next one.
This is solution 15. This is the low strength threadlocker. Same thing, this is brand-new so I'm just going to cut the top off a little bit here and apply this one. Put that on there, let that sit, close that up.
This is the solution 17. This is blue also, the other one was red that I just did (solution 15). I'm just going to cut that tip off a little bit. I'm going to apply a little bit on here. That's the 17.
And then the final one which is the high-strength. I have to remove the top on this too, and I'm going to apply a little bit of this stuff. There we go. This is the one they say is non-removable but we'll see, we'll test that.
So, we applied the thread locker to each one of these items: the hex cap screw, and the nut. This is the solution 15, MRO solution 15, purple. I'm going to see, this is low strength by the way, so I should just be able to take this right off with these tools here. This is for demonstration; for using it on an engine or something like that. You get the same result. This comes right off, but as you can see there you can see the purple threadlocker on there.
So, this is a lightweight, light-duty, low-strength product. This is the solution 10 blue. This is the most common thread locker product. Everybody uses blue. It's medium strength. This was applied 24 hours ago and I'm just going to take my wrenches here and just see how it breaks off. This is a little stronger than the low strength and you can feel that. So, it does lock the thread. You can see the blue residue coming off on my hands here. It does lock the thread. Does a pretty good job of it.
This is solution 17. This threadlocker is an oil-resistant thread locker. We did apply the blue oil-resistant threadlocker 24 hours ago and I'm just going to see how this removes. Actually, this one, the oil resistance one, is actually a little stronger in strength, but again does the job.
This is solution 16. This is high strength and high-temperature. This is either very difficult to remove after you place the thread locker on the nut and screw or it will be impossible. It's one or the other but we're going to see what happens here. We applied this 24 hours ago, so let's see what happens here. Well that's a good sign. I'm going to apply a little more pressure here. Alright, so it is turning but it's taking a lot of pressure to get it off. I would say that this is very good as far as high-strength goes, but in this demonstration, it was not impossible to remove it. It's very strong.
So there you go. I taught you about the different solutions of thread locker and different applications for them.
