That really depends on the plastic, but if that were the case here, I don't think it would crack like that. If loctite were "eating" the plastic, it'd be deteriorating (possibly flaking) at the surface which isn't really there.

I've used loctite only a handful of times, and just like mentioned; only a tiny drop is applied to the ends of the threads. The reason it gets on the plates, is cuz each of those holes is really tight.... it's unavoidable if you're using it. They say not to use it at all, because some tool would probably use loctite red in there, which would permanently bond.

The only reason I started using it in the first place is cuz my binding screws came almost completely off last year, when they were tightened that morning, from one day of riding. The loctite they provide only lasts a few times of mounting and dis-mounting.

DC5, thanks man, I'm gonna check that shop before I call SDS

Interesting. On the bottom of my 2010 Rome Targa plates, there's a sticker that says "Never use loctite."

i've never seen loc-tite damage, but it sure looks like there's loctite in every one of those cracks.

Funny, because the screws shipped from Rome with their bindings have loctite on them

I think the proper way to use loctite is a tiny, tiny drop at the ends of the screw threads, let dry and then screw in. This is the process I've always used without issues.

That's probably why they don't want you using loctite, cause they've already come shipped with the appropriate amount of loctite.

But if you unscrew you bindings a couple of times, all the loctite comes off. I don't think the manufacturers don't want you to use loctite, they just don't want anyone to go crazy on the stuff.
