Rapidstick™ 8242 Threadlocker (Moving Components, Blue)
Rapidstick™ 8242 Threadlocker
Rapidstick™ 8242 Threadlocker is fast curing with medium strength and specifically formulated to give controlled friction and torque/tension ratio during assembly. It is designed for plated parts and vibrating or moving components, and is ideal for fasteners with diameters between 6mm to 20mm (1/4” to 3/4″).
8242 provides a chemically resistant lock and seal to threaded joints, nuts, screws, and studs, meeting 90% of all nut and bold thread locking applications, and performs best in thin bond gaps. It can also be used for the retaining of cylindrical parts.
8242 meets Military Specifications:
- MIL-S-46163 Type II, Grade N
- MIL-S-22473E Letter Grade CVV

Chemtools® Rapidstick™ range of Threadlockers have been designed to offer controlled friction and torque/tension for sealing and locking varying sizes of studs, nuts, screws, bolts, joints, and fittings. Our Threadlockers provide the highest level of shock and vibration resistance – whether on moving components, or solid, heavy duty assemblies – and prevent loosening and the leakage of chemicals, water, gases, and oils.
From hairline cracks and porous surfaces, through to construction equipment and high temperature environments, Rapidstick™ Threadlockers, with slow or fast cure fixture times, low to high strengths, and permanent or removable formulas, are all guaranteed for bond stability and high performance – as well as peace-of-mind maintenance and repair.
