Hand pump dispenser launched for thread locker bottles

The new LOCTITE Pro Pump hand-held dispenser is said to provide clean and repeatable dispensing from any 50ml or 250ml bottle of LOCTITE thread locker.

Small, compact and lightweight, the dispenser requires no set-up or assembly. It uses patented, progressive cavity pump technology to deliver an average of 30mg of adhesive with a single pull of the trigger. A key feature is its multi-position nozzle can be set in three orientations: horizontal, 45°

up and 45° down; it can also be folded down to 90° for storing.

This new dispenser could be used with thread locker fluids such as LOCTITE 243, which has recently been upgraded to provide higher performance on metals such as iron, copper, brass and steel without an activator. In addition, its temperature resistance has been increased to 180°C, from 150°C and its heat-ageing resistance has also been improved. Another development is improved greater resistance to oil. This means it is suited to use in the industrial environment where it is often difficult to remove all grease and grime, says Henkel.
