How To Use E-Z LOK Threaded Inserts with Preapplied Loctite™ 204 Adhesive
Knowing how to use LOCTITE™ and how it works will help you get the best results for your application.
Pre-applied LOCTITE™ 204 adhesive activates upon installation and securely locks the insert in place. Inserts are “fastener-ready” 4-5 minutes after installation when using this metal adhesive. Full cure is achieved in 72 hours. At full cure, LOCTITE™ seals against liquids and gases to 6,000 psi.
LOCTITE™ 204 performs in temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Breakaway torque is 280 in/lbs.
Important: In order for the LOCTITE™ adhesive to perform properly, the tapped hole must be clean and dry. LOCTITE™ 204 works only on threaded inserts for metal. Installing an E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) threaded insert from metal in plastic or wood will not work.
If desired, E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) inserts can be supplied without pre-applied LOCTITE™ metal adhesive, allowing you to apply whatever adhesive you would like to use prior to installation.
