A couple of things:
I have a tube of "Blue Type 245" except it isn't Loc-Tite, it's Prime Loc, a very similar thread locker made by a different company, ITW Performance Polymers and this is what you may also have seen.
There is no such thing as "Red Loctite" as a single product. There are several grades of red colored Loctite in various strength for use on various size bolts and conditions. They very from strong to very strong and most require heat to release. There are also several grades of "Green" Loctite that are wicking lockers and applied after the bolt is threaded in.
