History of Loctite-
In 1953, an American professor- Vernon K. Krieble invented anaerobic thread locking adhesives. This experiment took place in the basement laboratory of the Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. Initially, Krieble named it- ‘American Sealants Company’ and later in 1963, it changed into Loctite. The name ‘Loctite’ was recommended by his (Krieble’s) daughter-in-law.
Even the new name for the business was announced by her in a public conference which held in University Club of New York on 26th July 1963.
Krieble died in 1964, after which his son Robert H. Krieble took over the business and continued further as the Chief Executive of Loctite Corporation. By profession, he (Robert) was also a chemist which helped him understand the business pretty well within the short span of time.
In the same year, Loctite produced a cyanoacrylate adhesive. This product was initially recognized as a repacked Eastman product and later named as ‘super glue.’ With the success of ‘super glue,’ Robert came up with a series of such products among which product like- Loctite 272 is still high in demand for both domestic and industrial uses.
