Efficient Flange Sealing for Limitless Productivity
Dekho Parkho Jaano

LOCTITE gasketing compounds offer a reliable and effective method to seal and strengthen flanges, thereby preventing gas and liquid leaks. Being a liquid, gasketing compounds occupy all surface irregularities between two mating flanges. As the liquid hardens into a tough thermoset plastic, gasketing compounds unitize the metal flanges against dynamic loads and leakages.

Benefits of LOCTITE Gasketing Compounds
over Conventional Methods

LOCTITE vs Manually Cut Paper Gaskets

Manually cut paper gaskets demand immense time and skill during installation process, yet do not fill the gaps which LOCTITE can fill completely.

LOCTITE vs Pre-cut Gaskets

Pre-cut gaskets seal by compression which makes them susceptible to relaxation. LOCTITE fills all gaps forming a tough layer that never relaxes.

LOCTITE vs O-rings

O-rings cannot plug all flange surface irregularities, which LOCTITE can seal completely.

WHY CHOOSE LOCTITE GASKETING COMPOUNDS
  • Resist loss in elasticity a. No cracking, relaxation or extrusion
    b. No need for frequent tightening of flange bolts
  • Unitized flange a. No side to side movement of flange or gasket
    b. Stable bolt tension due to elimination of a third element
  • 100% seal a. Impenetrable layer seals process fluid inside
    b. Prevents corrosion of flanges
  • Reduced inventory cost and complexity a. One tube can make various shapes and sizes of gaskets
    b. Always in stock
LOCTITE Solutions Across Industries
Gaskets across industries, perform the basic function of keeping the process fluid in place. LOCTITE gasketing compounds make sure that such vital components provide uniform performance even under tough operating conditions.

Frequently asked questions

Here’s a list of queries with responses that might help you.

  We require a gasket that can withstand very high pressures. Can we use Loctite Gasketing solutions?

Yes, LOCTITE Anaerobic Gaskets can resist pressure upto 34.47 N/mm2.

  Our design uses the pre-cut gasket as a shim. Is there any way to use Loctite Gasket in case the gaps between the flanges are large?

Yes, in case the product design specifies the use of pre-cut gasket as a shim, LOCTITE Anaerobic Gasket Dressing can be used in conjugation with the pre-cut gasket. Just clean the flange surfaces and apply LOCTITE Anaerobic Gasket Dressing to both the sides of a fresh pre-cut gasket. Make sure to use a primer on both the sides of the pre-cut gasket before application of the Gasket Dressing.

  What type of materials can LOCTITE gasketing compounds be used on?

LOCTITE gasketing sealants can be used on many different materials including metals, wood, rubber, plastic, ceramics, glass and even concrete. The type of sealant selected for a specific application depends on the material to be sealed, environmental conditions, temperature and operating pressures in the system.

  There are some traces of the old gasket left on the parts. What can be used to remove them?

In order to remove any old gasket parts, you can use LOCTITE SF 790 Chisel Gasket Remover.

  We have to seal a fuel system. Would LOCTITE gasketing compounds be effective?

Yes. LOCTITE has two types of gasket technologies - one is anaerobic and the other is high performance Silicones. LOCTITE Anaerobic Gaskets are resistant to gasoline and Fuel oils. LOCTITE High Performance Silicones are 8 times more oil resistant than standard RTV silicones and hence perform well when used to seal hot oil systems like oil pans. They are both definitely superior to ordinary silicones as the latter swell and loose their sealing ability when used to seal fluid systems.

  How can we disassemble a part sealed with LOCTITE Gasketing Compound?

In order to disassemble the flanges sealed with LOCTITE Gasketing Compound, just use hand tools, and clean the flange surfaces with LOCTITE SF 790 Chisel Gasket Remover.
