Threadlocker - Bob Smith Industries, IC-LOC Green
IC-LOC™ Green is a thin, medium-high strength threadlock that is applied to fasteners that are already assembled. IC-LOC™ Green wicks down into the threads of fasteners using capillary action and has good performance even with oil coated fasteners. Uses
  • Threads of fasteners
  • Bolts
  • Screws
  • Nuts

Directions: Shake well. Unscrew cap and cut off tip. Apply IC-LOC™ Green to clean preassembled fasteners. Product sets in 10 minutes, with full cure within 24 hours. IC-LOC™ Green prevents the loosening of threaded fasteners from shock and vibration by wicking into threads. Cured temperature range is -60° to +300°F (-51° to +149°C). Locked fasteners are only removable by localized heating and hand tools. Remove residue with a damp cloth. Similar to Loctite Green.
