Weicon Threadlocking Varnish
Weicon Threadlocking Varnish is a fast-drying, solvent based marking varnish that serves as a removable lock, allowing you to protect against tampering by unauthorised persons. It can also be used as a cover for electrically conductive parts or to protect against corrosion or unwanted contact. The many uses of Threadlocking Varnish have seen it deployed in many industrial applications such as mechanical engineering, precision engineering and in the automotive and electronics industries.
Threadlocking Varnish exhibits good adhesion to many materials and is durable against water, petrol, diesel, mineral oil, paraffin oil and diluted acids and lyes and as such can be used for locking screw connections of all kinds.
Although designed to be removable, once Threadlocking Varnish has been applied, tampering with the threaded screw or connection will create a clearly visible indicator. Threadlocking Varnish is perfect for use in applications requiring verification of production control measures and quality assurance inspections of threaded and other connected parts.
