LOCTITE gasketing compound offer 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.
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 COMPOUND?
- No cracking, relaxation,
or extrusion upon
- No need for frequent
tightening of flange bolts
- No side to side movement
of flange or gasket
- Stable bolt tension due to
the elimination of
a third element
Increase End Product
- Higher off-torque
- Impenetrable gasket seal
layer locks the process
- Prevents corrosion of flanges
Reduced inventory cost
- One tube of gasket seal
can make various shapes
and sizes of gaskets
HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT LOCTITE GASKETING COMPOUND?
To choose a suitable gasket seal, simply answer these three questions:
- What is the flange type (Rigid or stamped)?
- What is the size of the gap which needs to be filled?
- How is the temperature resistance?
