Unlike metal, plastics have a low coefficient of thermal expansion, so using the typical threadlockers for metals can cause cracks in plastics.

There are various brands that offer threadlockers specifically designed for use with plastics. Some examples include:

  • Loctite 222MS Plastic Screwlock: This threadlocker is designed specifically for plastic materials and is suitable for small screws and machine components.

  • Henkel Hysol 830: This threadlocker has low viscosity and is suitable for use with plastics and various other materials. It maintains its adhesion even at low temperatures and is resistant to moisture and chemicals.

These products are just a few examples of threadlockers designed for use with plastics, and there are various brands and products available. It is important to choose the right product for your specific application and environment.
