Permatex Adds Sizes and a Gel to Orange Threadlocker Line

Jan. 8, 2020

Permatex High Strength Removable Orange Threadlocker is now available in more application sizes as well as a new drip-free gel formulation.

The company says its orange threadlocker has been specially developed to deliver the holding power of a high strength red threadlocker with the easy removability of a medium strength blue threadlocker.

The new Permatex Orange Threadlocker Gel ensures precise application and ‘liquid reliability’ without drips, globs, mess or waste, according to the company.

The Gel Squeeze applicator helps place the proper amount of threadlocker material where needed. The company says this formulation is ideal for overhead, vertical, and hard-to-reach applications.

Permatex Orange Threadlocker Gel is offered in two Gel SqueezeTM applicator sizes, 5g and 35g.

Several new sizes and applicators have been added to the Permatex High Strength Removable Orange Threadlocker line. These include anew 6ml tube, 10ml bottle, and a new 36ml squeeze tube.

Permatex says that in some cases, customers may have applications that require more holding strength than a blue threadlocker but are reluctant to use a red threadlocker because it is more difficult to remove.

This is where Permatex High Strength Removable Orange Threadlocker offers the ideal solution, according to the company.

It combines the strength of red threadlocker with the removability of blue threadlocker, allowing for disassembly with regular hand tools. Permatex Orange Threadlocker has three times the strength of a blue threadlocker and is excellent for use in high vibration applications, ensuring that pieces will not loosen or back out over time.

Both the liquid and gel formulations of Permatex High Strength Removable Orange Threadlocker are suitable for use with a wide range of fasteners including case half bolts, triple tree fasteners, flywheel bolts, stator bolts, axle nuts, and transmission mounting bolts.

The threadlocker can also be used in multiple indoor and outdoor applications such as power tools, lawn and garden tools, dirt bikes, manufacturing machinery, heavy-duty construction equipment and more.
