Default verdict on red loctite?

thought I'd follow up here rather than start a new thread. capita sent me some binding screws that have red loctite on them. I'm a bit hesitant to use them because I've read multiple times to ONLY use blue loctite,but capita wouldnt send me bad hardware, would they? should i use these screws anyways or get new ones wihout the red?

Thanks in advance

If the manufacturer did it it's probably fine, but if you're worried use a wire brush (a bench mounted one will be easiest) to clean out the threads and then use blue loctite.

I'm surprised they'd put red loctite on the threads and let it dry, seems kinda useless?!?

Is there any way to get the red off? dissolving products?

Or do I really have to scrape it out of every groove with a knife??

I guess I could torch it, don't wanna eff up the screws though.

Thanks.
Why are you taking off the Loctite?

Don't burn yourself. Call our warranty guy 206.632.1601 - Ask for Butch. Be nice and explain that you're having some hardware issues. He'll take care of you.

Dude there's no reason to need to remove it unless its gunked all over and looks bad. Itll keep them from backing out on you. The difference between Red and Blue is the red is used on screws for a more permanent bond, where as the blue will release easier. Don't sweat it though because the red removes easy enough.

well the internet said so.....
craziness.

if its dry. its not even loctite anyways. because loctite uses an anaerobic reaction. so it wouldnt ever dry. i even helped with the hard part. HERE

if you gooped on all over hell. than yeah you dont want it on plastics. a drop or two. so its not dripping and oozing.

Anybody who understands that there are different types of Loc-tite with different characteristics. Some of these characteristics make certain kinds of Loc-Tite not suitable for some applications - e.g., red Loc-tite to secure binding screw is generally not a a good idea.
