Hartford, CT… Permatex®, a leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, offers a line of Permatex Gel Threadlockers that provide a higher level of reliability than conventional liquid threadlockers that can drip off bolts, or solid stick threadlockers that don’t fully penetrate into threads. Permatex Gel Threadlockers are available in two strengths, High Strength Red and Medium Strength Blue. They are also offered in three convenient sizes: 10g Gel TwistTM pinpoint applicator, 5g Gel SqueezeTM applicator, and 1g single-use pouch.

The gel formula helps ensure that the threadlocker is applied with precision and stays on the part through its clinging action, creating less mess and waste. The Permatex Gel Squeeze applicator allows technicians and DIYers to put the right amount of threadlocker material exactly where they want it, even in overhead, vertical, and hard-to-reach applications. The Gel Twist Threadlockers feature a unique 10g twist applicator that allows users to twist the package to expose 1/8 – ¼ in. of threadlocker material, which provides total control on the amount and placement. The single-use threadlocker pouch is the perfect size for one time application.

Permatex High Strength Threadlocker Red Gel is designed specifically for heavy-duty applications, from 3/8 to 1 in. It is especially well suited for permanently locking studs and press fits, adding 3,000 PSI holding power on slip and press fit assemblies. Applications include cylinder block and rocker arm studs, ring gear bolts, frame bolts, and shock absorber bolts.

Permatex Medium Strength Threadlocker Blue Gel is an all-purpose, medium strength threadlocker for applications from 1/4 to ¾ in. It eliminates the need for stocking expensive lock nuts and lock washers and locks and seals while preventing parts loosening from vibration. Applications include valve cover bolts, water pump bolts, oil pan bolts, drive shaft bolts, rocker arm adjustment nuts, and carburetor studs.
