How to release green loctite

Does anyone know an effective way to release green loctite? My muzzle break was installed with green loctite and I would like to remove it without destroying it.

Thanks

With the green loctite you would have to use some form of heat. Ya might get it with out heat but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Its going to take around 300-400 degrees of heat to break the bond.

Easy fix.

Hose it with Kroil and then go after it with a hot air gun.

The hot air will get it plenty hot without hurting anything. Keep the heat on it till it starts really smoking good. White smoke will just roll off the thing.

Then shut it down and the brake should come right off.

Clean the threads real good before assembly.

Remember, it is important to remove a break and clean the crown from time to time. This means, no lock tite. Just use a dab of anti seize or Copper grease.

Works great and won't hurt anything.

Good luck

boiling water

Hi just boil the jug and pour it over the joint. do this one or two tomes and the loctite will release. we always do this to release the green loctite that we use on full bore barrels that have a sightblock on them we just make the grub screws align the block and the loctite holds it in place.

Cheers Bill
