LOCTITE® 204™ is a dry-to-the-touch, pre-applied film for threaded fasteners. It remains inert on the fastener until assembly of the threads releases a quick curing resin. The resin fills all the voids in the threads and cures to securely lock and seal the assembly. LOCTITE® Dri-Loc® products prevent loosening through vibration to provide locking and sealing of threaded assemblies. They are widely used in automotive, machinery, hardware, and electrical industry.
