Never googled it...done a fair bit of work with these adhesives many years ago.  Take a look at this one:

https://www.henkel-adhesives.com/uk/en/product/threadlockers/loctite_243.html

The key things are : Do you need to ever undo the components...if so, avoid the strong ones, the 27x series. If its a bolt that may need undoing, then its the 24x series....and there are oil tolerant grades like the one I linked above......good luck with your choice as you may come to a sticky end if you choose badly  :007:

That looks like the "thicksotropic" version of the one I linked....meaning the fluid is thicker / less runny....I would be using the one I linked too but yours may do if you manage to keep the product on the thread and it does not squish off as you tighten the bolt (being thicker its not ideal on finer / close fitting threads)
