Which Loctite is strongest?

The strongest threadlocker available is LOCTITE® Red Threadlocker. This product cures completely in 24 hours and is available in two forms: a liquid and a semisolid anaerobic. It is also available in a liquid form. The red products are so powerful that they must be disassembled with high temperatures. There is also a primerless grade red threadlocker that is available.

 

People also inquire as to whether red or green Loctite is more powerful.

The colour red is intended to be permanent. Green is thin and will wick into even the smallest of gaps; it is also intended to be long-lasting. When heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, both lose their strength. The colours red and green represent High Strength thread locker and bearing and sleeve retainer, respectively.
