Also known as Anti-Sabotage Lacquer, Torque Seal is an easy and inexpensive way to detect loosening due to vibration and tampering. Apply it to fasteners and fittings after tightening to proper torque. The bright orange lacquer dries quickly, leaving a highly visible but brittle mark which will crack at the first sign of loosening.
Use Torque Seal on plumbing fittings, studs, jam nuts -- any assembly where regularly checking the torque or proper positioning is difficult or impractical. You can even use it to detect relative motion between two press-fit or clamped parts. Excellent adhesion to all clean, dry metals and most other surfaces.
For best results, occasionally knead the contents of the tube to prevent separation of the solvent from the pigment. Drying time and adhesion may be adversely affected if used on oily surfaces. Adhesion to plated steel and unfinished aluminum parts can be improved by preparing the surface with Loctite 7649 Primer N Surface Activator (Part No. LT-21348, sold separately). High-visibility orange only.
