    January 14, 2015

Vehicle maintenance is an ongoing challenge, but one that auto, truck and motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy – as long as they have the right solutions for the necessary work.

Henkel, with an innovative product line that covers every aspect of vehicle maintenance and repair, provides those solutions.
From that extensive portfolio, here are 12 solutions that should be a part of your maintenance kit.

1. Loctite Gasket Maker 518™
When emergency repairs are necessary, or when the right gasket is not available, this anaerobic can be used for water pumps, transmission pans, thermostat housings and other applications.

2. Loctite Superflex® RTV Clear Silicone
Flexible and waterproof, this general-purpose sealant can be used on metal, glass, plastic, vinyl and fabric.

3. Loctite Blue Stick Threadlocker
The stick applicator makes it easier to apply than a liquid, making this solution ideal for difficult and overhead applications. It is typically used on valve cover bolts, water pump bolts, drive shaft bolts and carburetor studs.

4. Loctite Anti-Seize Lubricant
Removing spark plugs and exhaust bolts is always a difficult job. This petroleum-based lubricant makes it easier.

5. Loctite Rearview Mirror Adhesive
This is a permanent mounting solution for affixing rearview mirrors to windshields, and one that is used by GM, Ford and Chrysler.

6. Loctite 592™ Thread Sealant
Here’s a moisture-resistant, vibration-resistant thread sealant that is effective on threaded fittings, and allows parts to be easily repositioned up to 24 hours after application.

7. Loctite Quick Gel® Super Glue
One tube does it all – this gel formula glue can be used on metal, rubber, leather and other surfaces, making it appropriate for quick repairs both under the hood and inside the vehicle.

8. Loctite Rubberized Undercoating
From wheels to automotive frames, this heavy-duty, all-purpose undercoating seals, protects and insulates.

9. Loctite Freeze & Release™
For repairing or restoring older vehicles that have seen better days, Freeze & Release™ freezes rusted parts so they can be more easily removed after just 1-2 minutes.

10. Loctite Black Weatherstrip Adhesive
While primarily used for weatherstrip attachment, this fast drying, temperature-resistant adhesive is also an excellent choice for auto carpeting, vinyl tops, upholstery and door moldings.

11. Loctite RTV Black Silicone
This is an indoor/outdoor sealant that can be used on windshields, doorframes, weatherstripping and electrical connections.

12. Loctite RTV 5699™ Grey Silicone Gasket Maker
When a gasket maker is required for high torque applications, this is the product to get the job done.
