Plastic patch: Usually applied to the external thread in the form of powder. The patch – an oval, partially applied marking – is non-adhesive, but clamping, which is why it may be reused up to about 5 times. It is therefore suitable for components requiring adjustment. The connecting elements are ready for use immediately after patching.
Thread-locking liquid: For external and internal threads. After debonding, i.e. after breaking the connection, the threadlock will no longer be effective. This type of threadlock can be used only once. Once applied, it takes about 24 hours for the thread-locking liquid to dry. After the connecting element has been screwed in, it takes 24 hours for the threadlock to achieve its full effect.
