    If you mean this bottle, it's loc-tite for when you resize the bracelet. Patrick at the factory sized my bracelet and told me to installed the screw pin part way, dab one drop of loc-tite on the opposite (threaded) hole, let it set a few seconds, fully tighten the screw pin then wipe off the excess loc-tite.



    Here's mine before re-sizing. You can see the economy sized bottle they use to the lower left.

    Interesting, Sinn should have English printed on the label. Otherwise people might use it as eyedrop

    How does one dissolve Lock-tite if pins have to be removed for resizing?

    I am not a good chemist, but I guess it depends on type of the locktite. I assume the one given by Sinn can be removed rather easily with normal mechanical tools. Looking at the spec, it's under category "mittelfest", meaning the adhesion level is in the medium scale. By extrem strong lock-tite, some needs to be heated up at very high temperature to remove the bonded part

    You don't need to do anything special to break loose a screw that has blue Loc-tite. If you use red Loc-tite you'd have to use heat to soften it up prior to removal.

    If it's cyanoacrylate, nail polish does a fair job of breaking it down.

    The surgical glue I use is a blue cyanoacrylate... looks identical to the Sinn stuff.

    Cyanoacrylate is Superglue, Loc-tite is an anaerobic adhesive that is based on methacrylate.

    From Wiki:

    Loctite's threadlocker products come in different strength grades, to suit the particular application.

    Blue Removable No. 242, 243, 246, 248, 2432 & 2440 - Used for things you may want to unscrew with minimal hassle. It cures into a brittle, glassy bond that takes one good twist to break, but removes cleanly after that. Recommended for use with valve covers, water pumps, oil pan bolts and Sinn watch bands.

    Red High-Strength No. 271, 262, 266, 268, 272, 277 & 2760 - Used on things that you don't want to take apart for a long time. It requires heat from a torch or iron (to 250° C) to loosen its grip. It cures into a thicker, sticky bond that holds up better against vibration and shocks. It is typically used in mechanical applications such as nuts and bolts in cars, motorbikes, snowmobiles, and watercraft.

    Green - penetrating grade No. 220(blue), 290 & 294 - Used for use on parts that have already been assembled.

    Purple - low strength grade No. 222MS & 222 - Used for set screws.

    That's cool. Didn't know that.

    We also use methyl methacrylate for bone cement.
