Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

Strong Thread Lock

Post by Stubbsy on Fri Sep 21, 2012 7:30 pm

Stupid "how long is a piece of string?" type question, but how strong is strong thread lock? Need something for a non RC application. Got blue thread lock in my kit, but not entirely sure it will be strong enough, to cope with repetitive violent shaking- likewise, I don't want anything like super glue or anything needing blasting with a blow torch to get undone because of a delicate painted surface!
So...... How strong is strong thread lock? Could I get it undone without too much hassle?

Standard thread lock (from Technicoll) has 17Nm breaking force
Strong has 25Nm

Which, in layman terms, means standard threadlock will stop almost everything subject to vibration or shaking from coming undone but is fairly easy to still undo with tools

Strong threadlock is close to the bolt or threaded part breaking when trying to undo. Use with some caution or common sense

You can always use standard and if that doesn't work use strong

I think different manufacturers have different colours, so no idea what strength blue is

FYI threadlock is a type of cyano btw. Just optimised for the application

Although I do agree with almost all of the above I would like to point out that Thread lock is anaerobic glue - will not set properly if there's access of air.
Hence the bottle are always "half full" - otherwise it will set in the bottle Wink

Yeh you don't want to be using a blow torch on the wife's jaw when you want to know how long will dinner be. Suspect
