Deep freeze

January 01, 1970

To free seized or corroded assemblies, Henkel Corp. has introduced Loctite Freeze & Release, a low-viscosity, spray-on lubricant designed to shock-freeze metal parts, allowing lubricating oils to penetrate into rust layers.
As Loctite Freeze & Release instantly freezes seized and rusted parts to -45°F, hairline cracks form in the rust layer as the metal contracts. These cracks allow the product’s lubricating oil to penetrate by capillary action quickly and efficiently into the rust layer. After one to two minutes, the assembly is easy to dismantle.
Loctite Freeze & Release eliminates the need for cutting torches and die grinders. The product is available in a 400-mL aerosol can.
