    Does Loc Tite have to be a certain temp before it cures? My shop is around 30 degrees in side?

    LocTite is anerobic - which means it cures in the absense of air. I think it will still cure in colder temps, maybe not as quickly tho...lack of moisture in the air will make it cure quicker - on really humid days it takes longer. It also depends on which one you're using. If you want to speed it up, put a heater near the parts, just don't over do it!

    Call me a wuss, but I can't work in a 30* shop, my fingers just get stiff and won't work - congrats to you for having the stamina to do it...

    1. Go to www.loctiteproducts.com

    2. Choose which one of the million varieties of loctite you are using from the "product by name" at the top right.

    3. Click on the "technical data" tab and you can download a technical data sheet for that product.

    I don't know-it has to be above 50 degrees before I will work on my cars.

    Lucky, turns out red loctite also has to be above 50 to work on your cars.
