How to disassemble We need to reopen the fastener. Can Loctite threadlockers be removed? The low strength grade of LOCTITE threadlockers can be removed by giving a loosening torque which is higher than the tightening torque. The medium and high strength LOCTITE threadlockers can be removed by applying localised heat degrees celsius to the part, for disassembly. You can just apply a few drops near the joint where the bolt head meets the part, and LOCTITE will wick inside the nut-bolt interface due to capillary action. Also, LOCTITE threadlockers only need to be applied on the nut-bolt interface and once the nut covers the area where LOCTITE threadlocker was applied, the adhesive will get cured in the absence of air and presence of metal, thereby turning into a thermoplastic, which cannot flow.

The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces. It protects threads from rust and corrosion and prevents loosening from shock and vibration. Preparation Protect work area. Parts to be sealed must be clean and dry. Shake the product thoroughly before use.
Note: To prevent the product from clogging in the nozzle, avoid touching the bottle tip to the metal surface. Application Apply several drops of the product onto the bolt at the nut engagement area.
For Blind Holes: Apply several drops of the product down the internal threads to the bottom of the hole. Force the material into the threads to thoroughly fill the voids.
Assemble parts and tighten as required. Sets in approximately 10 minutes and fully cures in 24 hours. Cleanup Clean adhesive residue immediately with a damp cloth.
Cured product can be removed with a combination of soaking in methylene chloride and mechanical abrasion such as a wire brush. For disassembly, shear with standard hand tools and remove with methylene chloride.
Disassemble while hot.
