Plane Threadlockers

Threadlockers are very helpful anaerobic adhesives.  They come in a wide range of strengths, and varieties that work best on specific substrates (non-metal, plastic, and metal), but the most common are blue (removeable) and red (permanent) threadlockers. 

Threadlockers are very handy.  They prevent threaded metal fasteners, nuts, bolts, and screws from loosening.  It only takes a second to squeeze a drop of threadlocker into any screw, nut or bolt and the reinforcement it provides is incredible.  Nothing is more frustrating than when fasteners are the cause of breaks and lost parts.  Using threadlockers is a great, simple, preventative measure that really pays off in the end.

Check out this article by Greg Covey, in RC Universe.  He uses Pacer Technology’s product Pacer Z-42 several different times to keep nuts, bolts, and screws locked in place while building this awesome Filton Inspire Mini!
