Re: Does Permatex thread lock work?
"Before talking about how Loctite® works, first let’s understand the difference between the curing process and drying. When Loctite® dries out, it does not achieve the same effect as when it properly cures. The curing process requires two elements: metal ions and a lack of oxygen (anaerobic environment). Simply put, when you place Loctite® on a metal bolt and screw it in, you are providing metal ions from the metal, and depriving it of air (oxygen), both elements necessary for the curing process. This curing (instead of drying) is essential to how Loctite® creates the bond between the threads that gives us the thread-locking effect."
