Loctite, sticky kind, non-drying?

Would like to purchase some for field repairs. I think it comes on some Magpul screws etc. Would love to put this on my SS screws for marine applications, would also be great to be corrosion resistant like aero gel. I use a lot of SS screws into aluminum and they need to be protected. I just cannot find it.


Or is it a bad idea for any certain applications. Thanks

Just buy a piece of bees wax off ebay. Beeswax keeps your threads protected and they can still be removed easily.

Yes.

I do not believe bees wax would have any properties similar to a thread locking substance. Iíve used it for wood but only in some of the harder species. Ipe for example.

I would like to have screws ready to go, like Magpul furniture screws.


Vibra-tite 111
Nylok
Loctite


These might be on the right track

Walmart, Home Depot or just about any boating supply should have what you want in stock.

I use locking hardware quite a bit at work, especially when our locking inserts are worn out and replacement is not an option.
McMaster Carr is a good resource for locking screws, they usually use a nylon patch imbedded in the screw.
