    Loctite 572 replacement?

    My local auto stores do no have this product. Where can I find it or can I use the loctite sticks? Ideas?

    I use 592 loctite.

    Local auto parts usually carry or can get it.

    Whats the difference exactly? I was at the parts store earlier looking through the book with the manager, which happens to be my friend, and we were stumped.

    They are both on this page

    The 592 seems to have a higher temp rating and higher sealing abilities

    Thumbs up

    592 is Permatex's product which is comparable to Loctite's 572. I actually called permatex's tech support line and they replied by saying "yes the our 592 is a direct, actually a better substitute for the Loctite 572." He went on to say, I don't know why you would want to use the 572 but the 592 would be an excellent choice for your application."
