For bulk processing applications thread sealant applications, choose a dedicated thread sealant: LOCTITE® DRI 517 GM-NA. This non-toxic, pre-applied water-based thread sealant is perfect for roll-coated or flow-coated bulk processing applications. When convection oven dried, it becomes a resilient, tight-clinging, non-curing sealant for tapered or straight threads. It's particularly ideal where re-adjustments are required, e.g. rear axle filler plugs, bearing adjuster nuts, pressure gauges and sensors, brake fittings, pipe fittings, and compressor pipe plugs. LOCTITE® DRI 517 GM-NA is also perfect for cable connectors, screws for plastic assemblies, adjustment screws, overhead fire sprinklers, shower heads, and door closure hardware. Good for applications with an operating range of –65°F to 302°F. REACH compliant. This material is required for all General Motors and Stellantis requirements outside of Europe. The sealant is not REACH compliant.
