In the 1950s, in almost all types of machinery, friction caused wear and tear, loosening of bolts and nuts, and leakages. The father and son duo of Dr. Vernon Krieble and Robert Krieble solved this problem by inventing the first anaerobic adhesive, called threadlocker, in the laboratory of Trinity College, Connecticut.
Solving the Unsolvable
In the 1960s, Loctite developed the cyanoacrylate – superglue with fast, room-temperature curing adhesive. Loctite has continuously created efficient solutions for "unsolvable" problems throughout its history.
In 1968, Loctite entered the automobile market by making a product that prevented engine vibration from loose-locking fasteners. In 1975, Loctite did a fantastic job of marketing super glue as a substance that could meet both the demands of the industry and the daily gluing needs at home. The brand was acquired by Henkel AG & Company in 1997.
In 2006, the brand relaunched the Liquid Super Glue range with a shock-resistant formula. It was followed in 2008 by the first flexible instant adhesive formula: Loctite Power Flex. In 2010, the brand launched Loctite Power Easy with a longer curing time. The brand launched Loctite Super Glue Liquid in 2012 and relaunched Super Glue Power Flex in 2014.
