Loc-Tite make probably 100 or more formulas, it helps to define which one you are referring to.

I thought green Loc-Tite was called wicking Loc-Tite.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

The general use of color as loctite goes is as follows.....

Blue - Removable
Red - High Strength
Green - Maximum Strength Retaining Compound

these three are the most common uses as called for in assembly instructions of all kinds......

There are several different types of green, this why each product has a different model number.

That is why i made it a point to say "The general use of color as loctite goes" meaning that it's just a general rule of thumb (meaning judgment by experience rather than strict measure) when referring to the color of loctite (as in the title of the thread), and generally when people use the color of loctite ONLY it generally goes as follows........

Blue - Removable
Red - High Strength
Green - Maximum Strength Retaining Compound

generally speaking that is........

Which is exactly my point, there is no general rule of thumb. There are several green products and each one has a different model number for a reason.

It's funny how the OP asked for "green thread lock" and everybody knew what he was asking for as most would.........

The so-called "Green Loctite" is typically known for wicking into parts which are already assembled.

But I agree there are many different kinds of Loctite--many which are not green. However most of the really interesting kinds of Loctite are quite difficult to purchase.
