Fill all voids and create a 100% high pressure seal
Can zero leakage really become the standard?
With increasing fluid leakage expenses - downtime, fluid consumption, clean-up, disposal, and safety risk - many manufacturing facilities are taking action to eliminate leaks completely.
Conventional cut or molded gaskets are One Way to attempt to seal flanges.
Loctite® gasketing products are a BETTER WAY! Better because they flow to cover the entire surface, ensuring that all surface irregularities are coated. Loctite anaerobic gasketing products then cure to a tough thermoset plastic which contains no voids and prevents leakage of any gases or fluids.
Available in a variety of controlled strengths, Loctite® anaerobic gasketing products also withstand chemicals, including solvents.
Eliminate gasket compression set, extrusion, and breakage
Over time, conventional cut or molded gaskets lose their elastic properties and become less resilient. Continual pounding of the gasket by the flanges causes a general decrease in the thickness of the gasket, cause the gasket to squeeze out from between the flanges or even break. Eventually, leaks will follow.
Loctite® gasketing products are a BETTER WAY! Better because the cured thermoset plastic can withstand the pounding and vibrations and will not change over time like cut or molded gaskets. Additionally, the elimination of conventional gaskets also eliminates the need to continually re-tension the flange bolts.
Finding spare parts for older pieces of equipment is, in many cases, an impossible task. The alternative of stocking various sizes and shapes of pre-cut gaskets to suit different equipment is costly. In addition to the expense, cut or molded gaskets do not always store well for long periods of time. They often become brittle with age or become damaged during storage and transport.
Loctite® gasketing products are a BETTER WAY! Better because liquid gaskets of any shape or size can be applied to any shape flange. Gaskets can always be available, even for old or obsolete equipment.
