Exactly! That's why I only use Rocksett on firearms. Especially gas block set-screws, and muzzle devices.272 breaks down around 500 degrees, rockset is 2000 degrees. Muzzle devices can hit 500 easily. I have no problem removing rockset it is high temp not high strength.
Thunderbeast recommends red loctite for their muzzle devices. They are very thorough and diligent about doing their own testing (rather than just going with the standard quo), so they are a brand I trust and listen to when they make specific recommendations.
And a spring washer.
I am amazed at the number of so called men that can't assemble things without them falling apart.
There are a number of different polymer "patches" applied to 180 deg of threaded fasteners, all variations of proprietary Nylok. They function not as adhesives but rather as hydraulic compression to the threaded engagement to resist loosening with vibratory impact, as such they are not heat-sensitive. Vibra-Tite is the working man's version of applying such a method to fasteners on the bench; I like to use a magnet to hold small gunsmith sized fasteners while it cures for installation. Magpul uses the yellow style, M&P uses the red style on their rear sight set screws etc. Not being an adhesive, its useful in applications such as rear sights that might require loosening / tightening as you adjust your windage at the range; usually good for 4-6 adjustments / per fastener. You can order fasteners with the adhesive applied from sources such as McMaster-Carr. As shown, sometimes the nylon is applied under the fastener head, not the threads proper.I was told that yellow thread lock is 3M Scotch-Grip, tough to remove on small fasteners w/o heat
Those nylon lock patches, as mentioned above, function as an interference fit, and do it by jamming the threads to one side, creating more metal/metal friction on the other side
The plastic yields before steel does. It doesn't force anything anywhere. It just fills in gaps and the excess gets spread around/cut off by the mating threads.
If your threads are such a loose fit that a small dab of nylock/vc3/whatever is going to cause misalignment you have bigger problems to fix.
@strikeeagle1 has it right.
You're the one who doesn't have a clue, calling a joint with a plastic filler "interference fit".Typical reading comprehension fail for Thread Pirate. Great job proving you don’t know what you’re talking, or what anyone else is talking about.
Nobody said the steel yields, genius.
And yes, StrikeEagle is right. He never mentioned muzzle devices. That stuff is fine for the applications he described and what it’s commercially used for.

LOL, what a fucking ignoramus.
Pretty much every time you post you prove yourself to be a clueless troll. Keep on winning!
You've reached the point where you don't even think about what your own words mean, let alone anyone else's. Are you drunk, or is it the meds? Or are you actually just that bad at critical thinking?
"Interference fit" doesn't mean steel has to yield, genius. It just means the sum of the male parts is slightly larger than the female parts, so something has to move - in this case it's obviously the thread locking patch. You have some major misconceptions about what things mean, and this is the second thread in the row where you tried to argue about something because your definition is wrong. Take a hint, and start looking up what things mean before you argue about them.
As I've said before - arrogance makes you stupid. That's 100% on you.
Might want to look up what an interference fit is in Machinists Handbook. Has a specific meaning.Those nylon lock patches, as mentioned above, function as an interference fit, and do it by jamming the threads to one side, creating more metal/metal friction on the other side. Bad idea for a suppressor mount.
They also don't seal the threads from moisture like a liquid thread locking product can. And generally they're intended for a single use as well.
However there is a different type of pre-applied lock patch (also single use) that is applied 360° around the threads and is an adhesive-based product; those generally perform very similarly to a liquid thread locker other than the convenience of being pre-applied. I don't see much advantage for those in this application though, unless a muzzle device manufacturer wants to have it applied to their parts.
Trust but verify.Might want to look up what an interference fit is in Machinists Handbook. Has a specific meaning.
Threads are not cut to a class 5. They are recommended cut to a class 3. Reference TBAC thread page.Trust but verify.
I'll play. To entertain the viewing audience at large this is from my library.
In the original Machinery's Handbook 1914 Edition, the term interference fit was neither defined or referenced. The latest 31st Edition defines an interference fit. A lot has changed.

Adding something plastic to the thread does not change the tolerances of the thread. It just means the threads are dirty and fit tighter.
Yondering was saying that it becomes an interference fit. That is not so.
