Efficient Flange Gasketing Compound for Limitless Productivity
Dekho Parkho Jaano

LOCTITE gasketing compound offer s a reliable and effective method to seal and strengthen flanges, for the prevention of gas and liquid leakage. Because the gasket seal is a liquid, it typically occupies all of the surface irregularities between two mating flanges. As the liquid hardens into a tough thermoset plastic, gasketing compound form a unit with the metal flanges against dynamic loads and leakages.

over Conventional Methods

LOCTITE vs Manually Cut Paper Gaskets

A manually cut paper gasket seal demands immense time and skill for a secure installation process; yet, it does not fill the gaps. However, LOCTITE rubber gasket seal can fill completely with a quick assembly process.

LOCTITE vs O-rings

WHY CHOOSE LOCTITE GASKETING COMPOUNDS
  • Resist loss in elasticity a. No cracking, relaxation or extrusion upon application
    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 gasket seal layer locks the process fluid inside
    b. Prevents corrosion of flanges

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 Gasket seal can resist pressure up to 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 seal before the application of the Gasket Dressing.

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

LOCTITE gasket seal 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 seal 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 seal 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. Hence, they perform well when used to seal hot oil systems like oil pans. Both LOCTITE gasket sealants are definitely superior to ordinary silicones as the latter swell and lose their ability to seal when used to seal fluid systems.

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

To disassemble the flanges sealed with LOCTITE gasket seal, just use hand tools, and clean the flange surfaces with LOCTITE SF 790 Chisel Gasket Remover.
