Loctite getting on carbon fiber?? Any help appreciated.
Hi all, just going over some final bits and pieces on my Freya EVO, and in particular just tightened up the tail servo plate's screws with loctite. I am using the upgraded part with the carbon fiber tail servo holder and when I put loctite onto the screws, even though I only used a small amount, I noticed I had got a little bit onto the carbon fiber servo holder, and that it almost appeared to soak into it a little bit.?? Is this in ANY WAY bad for the carbon fiber?? IE will it damage it or reduce its strength in any way shape or form because of the loctite that had got onto it??? Thanks.
Heli-Jimmy.

I wouldn't worry about it. Loctite can attack certain kinds of plastics, but the resin used in carbon fiber and fiberglass plates is reasonably resistant to chemical attack. Keep in mind that Loctite itself does come in a plastic bottle, so not all plastics are affected.

CF servo mounting plates have many times the necessary strength for the job, so even if it was slightly weakened it won't matter.
