Using loctite on heat block

Post by penn1793 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 3:31 pm

I saw some heat resistant loctite and wondered if putting some of it between the heat block and thermal tube would be a good idea. The plan is that I could change the nozzle without having the block move around. Would this cause any problems?

I dont think it would help. When changing nozzle block is heated up, so loctite strength is weakened. Also needs a bit of torque for nozzle to loosen, would likely break the loctite bond and spin anyway.
